Digital X-Ray Technology in Scottsdale, AZ
X-rays are a crucial part of dental care, allowing Dr. Alex Martin and the rest of our team to accurately locate and diagnose concerns that may not be visible to the naked eye. In the past, these X-rays were captured on traditional film, and this technique came with several pitfalls, including long wait times, bulky storage, and potentially unsafe levels of radiation. Today, our practice offers digital radiography as a much-improved alternative that simplifies this necessary process for the benefit of our patients. We look forward to helping you better understand your dental problems and select the solutions that fit your needs best. Contact our Scottsdale, AZ practice today to schedule an appointment!
The benefits of digital X-rays include the following:
- In the past, your X-rays had to be developed in a darkroom through a process that involved the use of hazardous chemicals and took hours of tedious time. Digital radiography transforms this into a neat, quick experience, allowing our team members to simply capture the detailed images we need with a small sensor placed inside the mouth and transfer them to our computer system in a matter of seconds for easy viewing.
- Because of their digital nature, our team members can rotate your X-rays, magnify them, and even color-code them so that the patient can better understand what exactly they’re looking at. Transferring the images to outside doctors or insurance companies is also a breeze!
- Your digital X-rays don’t require any physical storage and produce very little waste overall, which makes them better for the environment.
- Best of all, patients from Fountain Hills, AZ and surrounding areas can look forward to being exposed to very little radiation with digital X-ray technology. In fact, the amount can be reduced up to 90% when compared to the usual output of traditional X-rays.
