Welcome to Albany Dental Group where what we do will make you smile.
The Digital X-Ray allows for the dentist to identify potential problems. The great benefit of the Digital X-Ray is that it takes much less time and emits less than 80% of the radiation of the standard X-Ray machines. The Digital X-Ray is itself sensitive to radiation, so it was designed to protect both the Digital X-Ray itself as well as the patient.
A sensor is positioned in your mouth where the image is captured and transmitted to our computer. The images can be brought up on the screen for a close evaluation of the teeth and the surrounding dental structure with phenomenal precision.
The reasons why Digital X-Rays are so useful is that they allow us to identify when you may have tooth decay that could have been missed by visual observation alone. The X-Rays can also identify bone loss and detect gum (periodontal) disease.
Digital X-Rays can also help to place implants, orthodontics and other dental procedures. At Albany Dental Group we want to use the most non-invasive technology, with the highest degree of accuracy, at an affordable cost. Our goal is to make it easy to diagnose dental problems and get you set up quickly with a treatment plan.
If you have any questions or concerns as it relates to Digital X-Rays and its benefits and drawbacks, give us a call and we will more than happy to address any and all of your concerns.
