We are proud to offer you digital radiographs via the highly innovative DEXIS digital radiography system. The primary benefit is immediate results with significantly less radiation exposure than conventional dental X-rays.
Dental X-rays help us safely and accurately detect abnormalities as early as possible, so we can promptly prevent further dental problems. As X-rays pass through your mouth, more X-rays are absorbed by the denser parts of your mouth, like teeth and bone, than the soft tissues, like cheeks and gums, before striking the film. Thus, teeth appear whiter on imaging because fewer X-rays can penetrate through the dense material to reach the film. In contrast, cavities and gum disease appear darker on film due to greater X-ray penetration.
