A key component of every annual dental examination is the X-ray. They are an important tool for seeing what is happening inside the mouth, below the gum line, and in the bone structure of the jaw. As part of our ongoing commitment to the latest technology, Dr. Perlin of Smiles by Design was among the first dentists in the state of Illinois to offer digital X-rays.
Digital X-rays are superior to their older counterparts in several important ways:
- They take less time to generate.
- They use up to 80% less radiation.
- They can be transferred, manipulated, and enhanced in more ways than a traditional x-ray.
With this technology, our dentists can pull up the images immediately for reviewing with the patient, and use software tools to better illustrate and explain the issues found. This information can reduce the anxiety felt by our patients by giving them a better understanding of their issues. Being proactive with oral care can keep your smile healthy and your expenses low!
