Digital X-rays

Digital Radiography

Digital Radiography also known as advanced x-ray that produces an instant radiographic image on a computer.

X-ray sensitive plates capture data during the examination, and this data is transferred to a computer via an intermediate cassette. Digital x-rays provide many advantages over normal x-rays. Some of the advantages of digital x-rays include shorter exposure times, improved detail detectability, real-time applications, and enhanced SNR and linearity.

Due to the increased dynamic range, dentists can inspect multiple thicknesses in one shot. Digital x-ray delivers immediate feedback, and it is easy to transfer the image to patients electronically.

Digital Radiography includes digital x-ray, pan and Cone beam 3D

Digital Pan X-Ray

Better for our patients, our dentists, and the environment, our dental office uses the most advanced digital pan x-ray equipment available.
Patients are exposed to 85% less radiation compared to conventional x-rays. Since there is no film processing involved, dentists can access the digital images immediately.

Using digital imaging enables us to provide you with the best possible care. Digital imaging allows us to make the treatment process faster, more convenient, and more comfortable. Our dentist will examine your teeth and view instant high-quality images on the computer monitor.

Cone-Beam CT 3D

Digital Radiography

Cone beam C.T. 3D is a special type of x-ray equipment that comes in handy when the normal dental or facial x-ray is not sufficient. Our dentists use this technology to produce three-dimensional images of your teeth and other oral tissues in a single scan. It requires little to no preparation for our doctors to conduct this procedure.

We will seek certain information from you before conducting this procedure. For instance, we will ask about your health history and if you are pregnant. Cone beam C.T. is different from the conventional C.T., but it produces images similar to those produced by the conventional C.T.

1- Image Capture

Instead of using traditional photographic film, digital radiography employs digital sensors or detectors to capture X-ray images. These sensors convert X-rays into electronic signals, which are then processed by a computer to create detailed and high-resolution images.

2- Image Quality

Digital radiography generally offers better image quality compared to conventional radiography. The digital images can be manipulated, adjusted, and enhanced to improve diagnostic accuracy. This allows for a more precise diagnosis of medical conditions.

3- Lower Radiation Exposure

Digital radiography systems are often more efficient in capturing images, requiring less radiation exposure for patients. This is especially important in situations where minimizing radiation exposure is a concern, such as in pediatric radiology or when monitoring chronic conditions.

4- Faster Image Acquisition

Digital radiography provides almost instantaneous image acquisition, reducing the time patients spend in the imaging room. This is particularly valuable in emergency situations or when rapid diagnosis is essential.

5- Image Storage and Sharing

Digital images can be stored electronically, making it easier to manage patient records, access historical images for comparison, and share them with other healthcare providers or specialists when needed. This enhances collaboration and patient care.

6- Remote Viewing

Digital radiography allows healthcare professionals to view images remotely, which is beneficial for telemedicine consultations, second opinions, or for physicians who need to access images from different locations.

7- Environmentally Friendly

Unlike traditional film-based radiography, digital radiography doesn’t require the use of chemical developers and fixers, which can be harmful to the environment. It is considered a more eco-friendly imaging solution.

8- Dental Digital Radiography

 In dentistry, digital radiography has become the standard for capturing dental X-rays. Intraoral and extraoral sensors are used to take images of teeth, gums, and the surrounding oral structures, providing dentists with valuable diagnostic information.

Cone beam computed tomography (CBCT) is a specialized type of x-ray technology used in dentistry. It produces a 3D image of the teeth, jaw, and surrounding structures. CBCT uses a cone-shaped x-ray beam that rotates around the patient, capturing multiple images that are then reconstructed into a single 3D image.

CBCT scans are useful for a variety of dental applications, including:

  1. Dental implants: CBCT scans can provide detailed information about the density, width, and height of the jawbone, which is important for planning dental implant placement.
  2. Orthodontics: CBCT scans can help orthodontists evaluate the position and orientation of teeth, as well as assess the relationship between the teeth and the surrounding bone.
  3. Endodontics: CBCT scans can be used to diagnose and treat root canal problems, such as abscesses or fractures.
  4. TMJ disorders: CBCT scans can help diagnose and treat temporomandibular joint (TMJ) disorders, which can cause pain and discomfort in the jaw.
  5. Oral surgery: CBCT scans can assist in planning and performing oral surgeries, such as wisdom tooth extractions and jaw reconstruction.

Overall, CBCT technology allows dentists and other oral health professionals to gather more detailed and precise information about the structures of the mouth and jaw, leading to more accurate diagnoses and treatment planning.
