At Overlake Dentistry, we offer the latest technological advances in dentistry with digital radiography (x-rays). Instead of x-ray film, a sensor is placed in the mouth to record the energy from the x-ray machine. Within seconds of snapping an x-ray, the computer generates an image on the computer monitor. These images can be enlarged & enhanced for ideal diagnostic readings.
Digital radiography is safer than traditional x-rays as it reduces radiation exposure by approximately 50%. These images are attached to your computerized dental record, making them easy to print or send electronically.
Also, digital radiography is friendly to the environment as it does not require x-ray film or hazardous developing chemicals.
Digital radiography greatly improves our ability to better treat you and the environment.
