Used by River Valley Dental, digital x-ray is quickly being adopted as industry standard by a large percentage of the dental practices. As a benefit to the patient, a digital x-ray also provides nearly 80% less radiation than a standard x-ray. This is due to the fact that the digital version of the x-ray is much more sensitive and has been specifically designed with the patient’s health in mind. A digital x-ray allows the dentist to take an image of the tooth or teeth and put it into an imaging program. Within this imaging program, there are a number of tools that will allow the dentist to take a very close and accurate look at the teeth and surrounding structures.
At River Valley Dental, we are proud to offer this cutting-edge technology to our patients, who find it convenient and comfortable. They appreciate the reduced radiation that the digital x-ray system provides and they feel that they are making the best choice possible for their health and safety and for that of their families.
