Digital X-Rays

Digital X-Rays

At Sierra Dental Care, we are committed to utilizing new practices in dental technology to provide our patients with the highest quality care. One of the critical tools we use is digital X-rays, a cutting-edge imaging technology that revolutionizes how we diagnose and treat dental conditions.

Digital X-rays offer numerous benefits over traditional film X-rays. Firstly, they emit significantly less radiation, ensuring the safety and well-being of our patients. Additionally, digital X-rays produce highly detailed images that allow our skilled dentists to accurately diagnose dental problems, such as cavities, gum disease, and impacted teeth. These high-resolution images can be viewed instantly on a computer screen, allowing us to discuss the findings with our patients in real time and develop personalized recovery plans.

Technology has really improved the way dentists can view and diagnose tooth decay. In addition, digital radiographs have dramatically decreased patient exposure to x-rays, as much as 80-90% less radiation to the patient. Unlike the days of conventional film processing, digital radiographs allow the dentist to view the image immediately and start treatment without having to wait for the film to be developed. This decreases the time the patient spends waiting in the chair until they find out what is causing their toothache. Both the dentist and patient benefit from this faster viewing of the image. Unlike conventional film images that have to be stored in the patient file and hope that they don’t get lost, digital radiographs can be stored on a computer and saved to avoid loss and/or theft.

Another advantage of digital X-rays is their eco-friendliness. Unlike traditional film X-rays that require chemical processing, digital X-rays are paperless, reducing waste and contributing to a greener environment. Your oral health is our top priority. We dedicate ourselves to providing patients with safe, efficient, and accurate diagnoses to ensure optimal oral health. By choosing Sierra Dental Care, you can expect the highest standard of care, including digital X-rays.
