Dentistry has come a long way over the last few decades, constantly introducing new and exciting technologies that advance this area of medicine. Most notably, was the emergence of X-rays, which greatly improved examinations and expedited a dentist’s ability to effectively treat a patient. It allowed dentists to perform more thorough exams and help their patients overcome dental issues with more ease.
Most technologies progress fast and offering X-rays should only be the start. Our patients deserve the best and we need to be properly equipped to meet their needs.

Why Digital X-Rays?
For a dentist to provide you with the best dental care, they must know everything about your teeth, gums, jaws and alignment. X-rays give dentists access to your entire dental structure but not all X-ray machines are created equal. Our practice strives to provide you with the safest and most convenient treatment options available, including the utilization of advanced digital X-ray technology. Unlike other practices, we have everything on-site for a more efficient experience.
Digital X-rays provide several advanced imaging options designed to save time, provide clearer dental photos, and expose patients to less radiation than with traditional X-ray technology. A digital X-ray also gives the dentist better control over brightness, contrast and colour.
How Digital X-Rays Work
Like traditional X-rays, a digital X-ray requires that a sensor be inserted into the mouth. The sensor is connected to a computer and once the image is taken it is transmitted to the computer where the dentist can begin their examination. The procedure is painless and images are sharper and can be magnified allowing the dentist to see small cavities or specific areas close-up. Digital images can also be printed out, if needed.
Digital X-rays are an essential part of most dental checkups.
