Dexis Digital X-rays
Digital x-rays not only expose our patients and staff to 90% less radiation than typical film-type x-rays, they are also more sensitive than traditional dental x-rays. Digital x-rays allow Drs. Dale and Platt to clearly see the entire tooth and root structure as well as surrounding bone and tissue.
Because digital x-rays do not use chemicals to process the films, Gladstone Family Dental is helping the earth stay a little greener by not dumping chemicals into the public or ground water systems.
They give us the opportunity to detect and diagnose issues before they are visible to the naked eye, and before they can cause significant damage and pain.
To obtain an x-ray, a small sensor pad that is connected by a line to a computer, is placed in the mouth. A beam is then sent through your teeth to the sensor that records the images. The doctors and staff can immediately pull up the digital x-rays on a computer screen to review the results. No more waiting for x-rays to be developed. We can also share the images with you so you can see what we are explaining about your oral condition.
