Why Digital X-rays?
Digital X-rays can offer more precision as images are viewed on a computer monitor instead of holding up a 35mm film up to the light. Digital X-rays also result in one-sixth of the radiation exposure to patients.
Drs. Pollowitz and Brown choose carefully which and when radiographs are taken. Radiographs allow the dentist to see many things that cannot be seen with eyes alone. Radiographs enable the dentist to detect cavities between your teeth, determine bone level, and health of bone. They can also examine the roots and nerves of teeth, diagnose lesions such as cysts or tumors, as well as assess damage when trauma occurs.
Dental radiographs are invaluable aids in diagnosing, treating, and maintaining dental health. Exposure time for dental radiographs is extremely minimal.
Drs. Pollowitz and Brown utilize Digital Imaging Technologies within the office. With digital imaging, exposure time can be up to about 80 percent less when compared to traditional radiographs. Digital imaging can also help us retrieve valuable diagnostic information.
The advantages of digital imaging enable the dentist to not only store patient images but also to quickly transfer them to appropriate specialists or insurance companies.
