Our Office Now Has Digital X-rays &
WHAT THIS MEANS FOR OUR PATIENTS.................
Some of our patients have concerns about radiation exposure when receiving dental x-rays. With our new digital technology, this exposure is reduced to half. There are not any chemicals or film involved, making this new system environmentally friendly as well.
Traditional x-rays took approximately 10 minutes to process. Our digital system takes only seconds for your x-ray to appear on our computer screen. This allows the doctor to immediately view and diagnose any problems that may exist. The digital system is also more accurate versus traditional x-rays. Dr. O'Brien can enlarge and enhance the contrast of the image for a more precise diagnosis.
The digital x-ray system allows for better communication between referring doctors and insurance companies. Our office can now e-mail copies of x-rays to them for easier and quicker access.
