The x-ray on the left is not digitally enhanced. The x-ray on the right is digitally enhanced. If you look closely inside the orange box you will see a crooked vertical line. This line represents a fractured tooth that is unrestorable and must be extracted. It is this type of detail and information that we are able to view with digital x-rays.

While traditional film X-rays have been the standard for diagnosing dental problems for the past 90 years, digital X-rays offer substantial benefits over film. Our patients find it is more comfortable than film, and it's a real time-saver over the old technology.

Digital X-ray technology also enables our patients to see for themselves the dental conditions. The digital X-ray image is instantly displayed on a large computer screen and can be enhanced and magnified to show conditions such as cavities or structural weaknesses in teeth. It's a wonderful tool for helping our patients fully understand their treatment options.
