At Sixth Street Dental, we know that dental patients receive a higher level of care with digital x-ray technology, which is why we are pleased to offering this cutting edge technology to our patients.
What is Digital X-Ray technology?
Digital x-ray technology, also referred to as digital radiography, is the latest technological advancement in x-ray technology. Digital X-Rays offer patients a variety of benefits that make their dental care safer, healthier and more comfortable. There’s no caustic chemicals needed to process film in-office. They also reduce radiation exposure by at least 75%!
All of these benefits allow our clients to have a more positive experience and a better understanding of their oral health.
Here’s how Digital X-Rays at Sixth Street Dental work:
A small camera, about the size of half a teabag, is placed into the patient’s mouth. An image pops up immediately on a nearby computer screen. Dr. Zotis and you look at the images on a large LCD monitor, in real time, and make decisions about your dental health. Images are then stored on our computer at Sixth Street Dental for easy retrieval when needed.
