During your next visit to our practice
you will notice that we have converted from X-rays
to Digital Radiography. The Schick Digital Radiography
system enables us to obtain immediate images of your
teeth and supporting structures. The images are viewed
in the dental operatory on a flat screen monitor and
allow for a faster and more detailed examination.
These images are easily viewed and provide for exceptional
patient education. The files are stored in the office
computer for future examinations.
Studies have shown that with digital
radiography there is a remarkable 90% reduction in
radiation exposure compared to traditional x-rays.
Besides the many diagnostic advantages of the system,
our practice decided that the significant reduction
of exposure could not be ignored. The clinical staff
has found the introduction of digital radiology to
be a great addition to the practice since it offers
leading edge technology in helping our patients with
quality dental care.
