Digital X Rays
X-rays, or dental radiographs, are used in dentistry to uncover cavities, malignant or benign masses, hidden structures and bone loss. The radiographic image is created when a controlled and focused beam of radiation penetrates the area of the mouth at varying levels, depending on the anatomical differences, and then strikes the sensor. Decay often appears dark in the image, while healthy teeth appear lighter.
In our Cosmetic and Implant Dentistry of CT office, our equipment and software enables us to use digital radiography. We utilize the Sirona Orthophos SL, the Cone Beam x-ray unit at the forefront of the industry. This technology allows us to take three dimensional and two dimensional radiographic images using up to 90% less radiation than conventional film x-rays. These images are highly detailed and allow the doctor to diagnose dental concerns and determine precision treatment planning with minimally invasive surgeries.
