At Cornerstone Dental, we believe it is critical for our patients to be informed about their own oral health. Digital x-rays are an example of technology that includes you in the process so you can see for yourself what’s happening with your teeth and how we can help.
Digital x-rays offer many advantages compared to traditional film x-rays. This technology produces high-resolution digital images that help us identify disease when it’s still small and easy to treat. We can share the images with you on your chairside monitor and adjust them so you can clearly see what the problem is and why treatment is necessary.
We understand that our patients are concerned about radiation exposure. One of the reasons we chose digital x-rays for our office is that the process produces about 95% less radiation than film x-rays. Digital images are also easier to share with specialists or your insurance company as needed since they can be sent electronically.
