Safer, More Comfortable X-Rays Are Finally Here!
Our office maintains a modern computer network complete with high resolution flat screen monitors and we use only the most current digital x-ray technology. This upgraded technology allows us to limit your radiation exposure to the lowest possible limits...in fact, our initial calibration in 2012 lowered our exposure settings to over 12x less radiation than the traditional film system used prior to our digital upgrade...and our improvements continue to this day!
We also have a system we know you are going to love....it allows us to take x-rays without using any films or sensor in your mouth (see above). Some of our diagnostic images can now be taken OUTSIDE YOUR MOUTH, allowing you to avoid having to open wide for your checkup x-rays. Ask our dentist Scottsdale AZ about our extra-oral imaging system at your next appointment!
Our office also uses digital intra-oral sensors for some procedures (see photo right) which improve not only comfort and radiation levels of dental x-rays, but developing time is eliminated and we can get your dental work finished faster than ever before!
