Digital dental X-rays boast many improvements over traditional X-rays which were used for decades in all fields of medicine. First, digital technology makes it possible to obtain a highly detailed image of the underlying tooth structures. With digital X-rays, Dr. Robert Harrell can not only take a higher-quality image, he can use computer software to sharpen, alter or zoom in and out from the image. Digital X-rays are far more advanced in their ability to provide detailed images of small spaces, such as the canals and roots of the teeth. With this technology, Dr. Harrell is better able to diagnose and treat a wide range of dental health issues.
Dental X-rays also expose patients to far less radiation — as much as 90% less than conventional X-rays. To some extent, digital X-rays are even more environmentally friendly, as they do not use chemicals to fix images on film like traditional X-rays.
With the aid of digital X-rays, Dr. Harrell can make the most accurate diagnosis of your dental issues, and prescribe a safe and effective treatment plan that will have you smiling with pride.
