We have transitioned to digital x-rays at West Olive Dental.
The benefits to our patients are several. We can reduce the radiation to our patients while increasing our diagnostic proficiency. Unlike film, digital x-rays can be enhanced to assist in making a precise diagnosis. Images can be magnified, sharpened, colorized or dislayed as a negative.
Digital x-rays also have a benefit to the environment by reducing the harsh chemicals and other waste materials that were necessary with film.
The time savings to the patient and office are immense too. Nobody wants to stay at the dental office longer than needed!
