X-rays have long been a standard of dental care. However, digital images are sharper and more accurate than older film x-rays. Dr. Shainholtz can magnify these x-rays many times on the computer, thus identifying decay and other problems much earlier. This allows him to treat these conditions before you require extensive restorative treatment.
Digital x-rays are also more convenient than film. Dr. Shainholtz will be able to pull up and examine past x-rays much more quickly and can easily transfer them to a specialist if needed. Finally, digital x-rays involve far less radiation exposure than traditional x-rays. With digital x-rays, we can protect both your oral and systemic health.
