Digital X-Ray Technology
Why Do We Need Dental X-Rays?
Dental X-rays enable dentists to see decay between teeth that would not be visible to the naked eye. This allows us to act earlier against cavities, which otherwise can extend beyond the restorative stage. Your vital organs will always be covered with a lead apron when the images are being taken as X-rays do expose patients to a small amount of radiation. Now we use Digital X-rays which a safer way to take these images.
How Q.T. Dental Reduces Radiation Exposure from Patient X-Rays
Digital X-rays are one of the most important new advances in our office. Our digital X-ray emits as much as 85 percent less radiation than traditional X-ray technology (film X-ray).
We are not only able to reduce your exposure to radiation but also increase the diagnostic proficiency. In addition to increased diagnostics, digital X-rays reduces the amount of harmful chemicals and other waste materials associated with traditional X-ray technology. The reduction in waste was a big consideration when deciding to invest in digital technology. We pride ourselves in being environmentally responsible.
