X-ray machines are essential in the dental and medical fields as they provide a way to see hidden issues that may have otherwise not been found. Gum disease, tooth decay, bone loss, impacted teeth, tumors and cavities can all be detected in early stages during a dental cleaning or check up by x-rays. At the New York Center for Cosmetic Dentistry, we use a digital x-ray machine because of its many advantages over a traditional x-ray machine.
The main and most important benefit of using digital x-rays is that it doesn’t emit nearly as much radiation as conventional x-rays. Radiation cannot be completely avoided but digital x-rays are much safer as they produce 80% less radiation than an analog x-ray machine.
We take pride in utilizing the latest technology in dentistry to not only benefit us but to benefit our patients as well. The safety of our patients is a top priority and digital x-rays are a much safer, convenient, and comfortable means of capturing dental images.
