Digital radiography or x-rays as they’re commonly known, tell us a lot about the current condition of your teeth. They give Dr. Martinez a view of your general oral health and help him determine what direction your treatment should take.
There are many benefits to using digital x-rays, and patient safety is one of the most significant. Digital x-rays dramatically reduce the amount of radiation to which you’re exposed to no more than you receive daily from the environment.
Digital x-rays also help you play a part in your treatment because Dr. Martinez can share them with you on your chairside monitor. He can easily point out problem areas so you can better understand why orthodontic treatment is necessary.
Convenience is another advantage because we store digital x-rays electronically, so it’s easy to share them with your general dentist, other specialists, or your insurance company as needed.
