Smile Lake Anna is proud to offer the latest digital technology with digital x-rays in Spotsylvania, VA. Digital dental x-rays offer several benefits compared to traditional x-ray film. They allow our dentist to provide an accurate diagnosis of any dental issues, they emit less radiation, provide quicker results, and offer clear images without distortion.
When you visit our dental office for your bi-annual dental examination, our friendly team can answer any questions you have about digital radiography.
We use digital x-ray imaging during your regular preventive care visits in order to ensure that you have great oral health. Digital images are helpful in diagnosing problems with teeth, jaw, and gums.
Here are common types of dental x-rays we offer and their uses:
Digital x-ray sensors have replaced conventional x-rays because they emit less radiation exposure and they provide high-quality images that give an accurate depiction of the patient's overall oral health. Although radiation exposure in traditional medical x-rays is low, this technological advancement decreases exposure to radiation by up to 90% compared to conventional x-ray machines.
Additionally, digital x-rays provide a 3-D image of your mouth that can be viewed immediately and quickly shared with other healthcare providers such as orthodontists or oral surgeons.
The dental professionals at Smile Lake Anna are committed to providing our dental patients with a high-quality experience using the latest dental technology. Patient education is important to us, so if you have any questions about our diagnostic procedures, don’t hesitate to ask one of our team members.
