The latest advancement in dental X-ray technology uses a computer and low-radiation X-ray source to produce images directly on a computer screen. With sophisticated software, the computer-generated X-ray can reveal information not previously available from a conventional X-ray machine. X-rays taken by the Digital X-Ray can be colorized, magnified and computer-enhanced to indicate things not visible on a conventional film.
Although every patient can benefit from the over 90% DECREASE in radiation exposure, the digital X-ray machine offers special benefits to DENTAL IMPLANT PATIENTS. With the “instant” development time of the computer and the ability to view an enlarged X-ray on a computer screen at the patients’ chairside, Dr. Habekost has the ability to make sure the patient’s nerves and sinuses are protected and the implants are properly seated by taking digital X-rays at various points during the procedure!
Added patient safety, more predictable treatment, much lower X-ray radiation, and instant feedback clearly make the digital X-ray machine the X-ray technology of choice.
