Dental x-rays are a powerful diagnostic tool. They allow the dentist to get a close look at your teeth, identifying what kind of dental issues you may be having. The American Dental Association recommends getting bi-annual preventative dental appointments. These appointments should include a full cleaning and dental x-rays.
South Florida Smiles is proud to offer digital dental x-rays. Digital x-rays are a new type of dental x-ray technology. Instead of using film, pictures are digitally taken and sent right to our computers. Digital dental x-rays offer many benefits.
One of the benefits of digital x-rays is that they expose you to very little radiation. Your cell phone exposes you to more radiation than a digital x-ray. This makes digital x-rays the safest option for dental x-rays. Your safety, health, and comfort are all important to South Florida Smiles.
Another benefit of digital dental x-rays is the dentist’s ability to manipulate the pictures. Since they are sent right to our computers, software is easily used to adjust the picture’s size. This means the dentist can enlarge pictures to get a closer look. Digital x-rays give the dentist a better view of dental concerns.
Digital pictures also allow dentists to send dental x-rays to other dentists or specialist. You do not have to have x-rays repeatedly taken for the same dental concern. Dentists can easily communicate with other professionals.
Finally, digital dental x-rays help dentist better analyze your dental concerns. Current and past pictures can be compared. Dentists use a special process to show the differences between the pictures. This gives them the earliest indication of dental changes. The sooner problems are diagnosed, the easier the treatment. If certain dental health patterns are caught early enough, an extensive dental procedure may not even be necessary.
