Digital X-Rays

We are a true chartless office. The digital x-ray system, intra oral cameras and dental software we use allow our staff to chart fillings, decay, periodontal disease and other case-specific findings. Being chartless allows us to have detailed information at our fingertips, which helps us treat you more quickly and efficiently all the while keeping your records safe, secure and as accurate as possible. We can instantly transmit patient information and radiographs digitally if needed and can integrate your entire file into a secure email. Being chartless also supports our philosophy of being eco-friendly by cutting down on paper use and unnecessary waste. All of our computers are energy star compliant. Digital radiographs enable the dentist or the dental hygienist to look inside the tooth. The x-ray image immediately appears on a computer screen to enable both the patient and the dentist to review immediately. These images can be enlarged to increase visibility of problem areas. The digital radiographic technology is significantly safer to the patient and the environment. The old method of x-rays technology emitted up to 90% more radiation. To put this in perspective for you: six digital x-ray images of teeth can be taken for the same amount of radiation exposure it takes to process one piece of conventional dental x-ray film. Digital x-rays do not require harmful toxic chemicals for film development and eliminate the use of plastic film packets. This is a tremendous environmental benefit. This means the employees, the patients and the environment are not exposed to harmful chemicals and there is a reduction in the amount of disposables.
