Digital X-Rays in Greektown
For your added safety and comfort Danforth Neighbourhood Dental Centre, Dr. Syriopoulos now uses Digital X-rays.
What is the foundation of your smile? Digital X-ray technology provides a faster and safer way to closely examine your teeth. These X-rays speed treatment and provide a more accurate diagnosis of your teeth.What are the advantages of digital X-rays?
The advancement of digital x-ray technology has meant many advantages over traditional x-rays. Some of these are outlined here:
- digital x-rays are much faster than traditional x-rays
- there is much less radiation
- the images can be enhanced for a more thorough diagnosis
- images are stored digitally for easy retrieval and comparison
How does it work?
Don't worry its quick and easy! We place a small sensor in your mouth which is connected to a computer with a tiny wire. An x-ray beam is then sent through your teeth which records the image of your teeth and sends it too a computer. The sensor can be repositioned to photograph other sections of your teeth.
Even though digital X- rays produce very minute levels of radiation, Danforth Neighbourhood Dental Centre still takes all necessary precautions to limit the patient's exposure by using lead apron shields to protect the body and only taking x-rays when they are absolutely necessary.
