Dental X-Rays in Midwest City, OK
At Diamond Dental, we know that fitting in visits to the dentist can be tough with today’s busy schedules. That’s why we embrace the latest in dental technology; it tends to make visits to the dentist that much quicker! For example, digital x-rays mean less time in the dental chair for patients because they are faster. Plus digital x-rays have the added benefit of exposing patients to less radiation than traditional x-rays.
Because they provide better resolution than traditional x-rays, it means your dentist can see problems while they are still quite small. This enables us to provide earlier intervention for patients, which almost always means there is less pain involved with treatment—and there is usually less expense as well.
We are happy to provide the most up-to-date technology to make your visit to the dentist more comfortable, more efficient, and more accurate.
Advantages of Digital X-Rays
Digital x-rays are safe. Many of our patients are concerned about radiation exposure, and digital x-rays mean less exposure. You are likely to get more radiation exposure just walking outside on a sunny day. However, there are some patients, such as pregnant women, who may want to be careful about when they have the x-rays taken. But overall, digital radiographs mean more accessibility for everyone.
Digital x-rays are fast. Digital radiographs not only enable your dentist to see below the surface of the teeth, but he or she can do it more quickly. Unlike traditional x-rays, which involved a development process that took extra time, digital x-rays are as quick as taking a photograph with your smartphone. With digital x-rays, the image can be uploaded directly to a computer for immediate observation on a chairside monitor.
Digital x-rays are flexible. Traditional x-rays only come in the actual size of the picture, but the size of digital x-rays is easily manipulated, according to your dentist’s preference. If your dentist wants to take a closer look at something, a digital x-ray is easily enlarged right on the computer screen. This means even the smallest issue can be seen immediately and treatment can be recommended early when it is generally less invasive and less expensive.
Digital x-rays are efficient. Old-fashioned x-rays had to be mailed, but a copy of your digital x-ray can be made easily and sent via email. If you are waiting for your insurance company to determine treatment coverage, you may get approval much more quickly.
