New Digital X-Ray Technology in Use

We take great pleasure in announcing that our office now utilizes DEXIS® Digital X-ray in the taking of dental X-rays. DEXIS is a computerized X-ray system that replaces standard film and its processing. This provides you, our patients, with several distinct advantages:

Reduction in Radiation – Digital X-rays utilize a highly sensitive sensor rather than a piece of film and requires about one-quarter of the exposure of film to yield a diagnostic image.

A Comfortable Sensor – The DEXIS system uses a patented sensor with beveled, corners and rounded casing that make the process of taking X-rays easier, more efficient, and far more comfortable, even for gaggers and children.

Instant Developing – You will be amazed! As soon as the X-ray is taken, it appears immediately on the computer monitor. This results in less chair time and more rapid treatment. You will be in and out of the dental chair in less time than it took in the past, something I am sure you will appreciate!

Enhanced Diagnosis – Digital X-rays, like most other forms of electronic information, allow for enhancements by using sophisticated imaging tools during the examination and diagnosis process.

Increased Communication and Understanding – Due to the enlarged and enhanced view of the X-ray images, you will, for the first time, actually be able to see the condition of your own mouth on a large screen monitor in front of you. You will be able to easily visualize and understand the diagnosis and proposed treatment plan so that you can better participate in your own dental health.
