Much faster and more accurate than traditional X-rays, digital X-rays are easily stored and retrieved right from our computer system at Antigonish Family Dentistry. So no more digging around for files or waiting for X-ray films to develop!
What are Digital X-rays?
Digital X-rays use technologically advanced techniques to store the image of the X-ray in digital format. Digital X-rays are much faster than traditional X-rays. This results in a quicker, more comfortable experience. All digital X-rays are stored in our computer system for easy reference by our team at any point during your care. Digital X-rays help detect and problems faster allowing for a more precise monitoring and treatment.
Why are X-rays necessary?
An X-ray is an important diagnostic tool for our dental team. By using digital X-rays, our staff can detect and assess various dental issues which would not be visible by direct examination including early tooth decay, bone loss, problems below your gum line, cysts, abscesses, tumours, or impacted teeth.
How frequently will I need a digital X-ray?
If an X-ray is recommended, we'll tell you during your appointment. It can be taken on the spot and the images will be available immediately so there's less waiting.
