At Advanced Dental Techniques we care about your health, which is why we use digital x-rays. This new technology allows us to get more information from each film than traditional x-rays because computers allow us to magnify images, zooming in on anything that we find that may be suspicious. It also allows us to more accurately look at teeth. In addition, patients benefit because they are exposed to almost 90 percent less radiation than those taken with conventional film.
A digital x-ray system is computer based and produces instant images of excellent quality. Instead of holding a small film to a light and trying to see things, images are viewed on a high resolution computer monitor. The images are large, crisp and clear and can be manipulated to give even more information. Creating a 3-D image, colorizing the film by density or improving contrast is a click away. This helps us provide a better diagnosis and results in better treatment outcomes. They can also be viewed by patients on our flat panel televisions as they are reviewed by Dr. Breiterman so they can better understand their dental condition. In addition, they can be easily and quickly e-mailed to insurance companies and other specialists involved in your treatment.
