Maintaining your oral health is an important aspect of a high quality of life. Infections and other oral health issues can have a dramatic impact on your overall health, even increasing your risk of cardiovascular issues and certain issues like diabetes. Every trip to the dentist is an investment in your health, and you should receive the best care possible based upon accurate information about your teeth and jaw. Digital radiography, a relatively new form of x-ray imaging, is an accurate and convenient way to learn more about your oral health with minimal discomfort or difficulty. Come visit us at Henricksen Family Dental for firsthand knowledge about digital radiography and how it can benefit your health.
No Film Processing
Digital dental radiography is a form of digital x-ray. It is an interesting concept where the image of your mouth automatically shows up on our computer screen as soon as a chip is placed inside it. This x-ray is created virtually, and no film or processing time is required. That means that we see results immediately and can diagnose and begin to treat any potential issues right away. It also means that the number of office visits required to properly locate potential oral health issues is often dramatically reduced.
One of the main benefits of using digital radiography is that there is no need for you to go to multiple places to obtain accurate x-rays or to wait until your reports came in from outside laboratories in order to receive treatment for various dental issues. Today, our professionals can begin to treat the problem immediately.
A Seamless Patient Experience
Digital images make it easy to maintain patient records and access past reports and x-rays immediately. This is perhaps especially helpful in cases where a current problem might be linked to an older dental issue. Instead of shuffling through stacks of paperwork to find the right office visits, we can easily find the records in your digital file. We can also easily compare your current oral health to past visits to measure how well your teeth are healing.
Beyond making it easier for us to keep track of your information, digital radiography makes it easy for you to see exactly how your teeth are progressing, too. The images are clear and instant, and we can explain what you’re seeing right away. This also gives you more time to ask questions. It’s a great option that offers both clients and dentists alike an enhanced user experience and results in more thorough and comprehensive care.
Digital radiography is comfortable, convenient, and easy to get used to in addition to being something that can help us treat your dental problems much more quickly than we might have been able to in the past. It is a boon to dentistry and we highly recommend that you give it a try with us.
