Using multiple views of the tooth, digital imaging software helps to diagnose a proper course of treatment. Digital x-rays are beneficial to the patient as well. They decrease radiation by 80% and they are a phenomenal diagnostic tool.
Gilbert Vista Dental Care offers a wide variety of high-quality dental services, including digital x-rays. As a newer technology, digital x-rays offer all the benefits of a traditional x-ray without the majority of the risks. When you choose to have a digital x-ray performed on your mouth, Dr. Rita Peck will carefully insert a sensor into your mouth which will capture the image of your teeth and jaws. This digital image will send information directly to a computer so the images can be viewed in real time on a screen. Or, the images can be taken via a specialized scanner, or with a combination of sensor and scanner. The dentist will determine which method is appropriate for your needs. Our team greatly applaud the technology offered by digital x-rays, such as enlarging an area of concern in real-time, without having to wait for an image to be uploaded and read.
