Low Radiation Dental X-Rays
In order to provide the best quality care to our patients, Aarohi Dental is dedicated to using the most advanced dental care technology. In order to provide safer and clearer results, our office uses digital x-rays. To educate you more about our low radiation dental x-rays, we have detailed what they are, why they are right for you, and how digital x-rays are taken.
What are Dental X-Rays?
A dental x-ray is a picture of a patient’s teeth, mouth, and jaw that allows the dentist to clearly view the soft tissues, bones, and teeth. Dental x-rays help the dentist find cavities and other oral health issues such as impacted wisdom teeth that can’t be seen with a regular examination. The typical x-ray uses an outdated film method, but we use a more advanced digital x-ray option. In comparison to conventional film x-rays, our digital x-ray machines have the following advantages:
- Digital x-rays are instantaneous which allows our dentists to immediately review them resulting in faster appointments for our patients. The x-rays are also saved on a computer for later referencing.
- Digital x-rays can be magnified and reveal things that film x-rays can’t.
- Digital x-ray machines use 50% less radiation than film x-rays.
