We at South Valley Oral and Facial Surgery use digital X-rays for a variety of procedures and treatments, including dental implants, all on 4, tooth extraction, bone graft, etc.
Types of Digital X-ray Systems
The field of dentistry is very wide and diverse, and thus there are multiple kinds of digital dental x-ray systems that we use for different procedures.
These are now fast replacing traditional radiography systems for the numerous benefits they provide.
Benefits of Digital X-rays
Dental X-rays have to be taken yearly, and many patients shy away from getting them for fear of damage from the excessive exposure to radiation. However, they are necessary as they can help identify the onslaught of a dental problem early on and aid in their treatment and monitoring of the recovery. Digital X-rays sound complex and but they are not. In fact, they are simple and convenient, and they also combat many of the drawbacks of traditional side effects.
You no longer have to think twice before getting the dental implant, especially if it is the fear of exposure to radiation that is holding you back. The use of digital radiography has simplified the process, making it safer, quicker, and efficient.
