Many of our patients are understandably concerned about their exposure during dental x-rays. At Fain Dental Arts, we have chosen to invest in state-of-the-art digital x-ray technology that minimizes your exposure by as much as 90% compared to film x-rays.
Digital x-rays offer lots of other advantages, too. Instead of bulky x-ray film that can be uncomfortable to hold in your mouth and often results in repeat exposures to get a clear picture, digital x-rays use flat digital sensors. Since they're flat, they fit more easily in your mouth, and their rounded edges won't poke into tender tissue.
We also use digital x-rays as an educational tool. Within moments of taking the image, we can share it with you on your chairside monitor. Just like any digital image, our doctors can zoom in on specific areas and enhance the image to show you exactly what the problem is and why we need to treat it. Your digital images are stored on our secure in-house network, making them easily accessible for reference or to send to specialists and insurance companies.
