At Spokane Family Dental, we are steadfast in our dedication to incorporating the latest advancements in dental technology to offer our patients superior dental care. One of the hallmark services that underpins our commitment to state-of-the-art diagnostics is our Digital X-Ray Service.
What is the Digital X-Ray Service?
Digital dental X-rays are a more advanced form of traditional dental X-rays. This technique uses an electronic sensor to capture and store the digital image on a computer. The image can be instantly viewed, enlarged, or modified, helping dentists and dental hygienists retrieve it more quickly and identify potential problems.
Key Advantages of Digital X-Ray Service at Spokane Family Dental:
- Safety: Digital X-rays emit up to 90% less radiation than traditional dental X-rays, making it a safer option for patients of all ages.
- Clarity and Precision: Digital X-rays provide more precise and detailed images. This allows our dental team to detect even the most minor changes or issues that might be missed with traditional X-rays.
- Immediate Results: Films can be developed quickly. The image appears on the computer monitor seconds after the X-ray is taken.
- Environmental Impact: Without the need for film or chemicals used in the traditional developing process, digital X-rays are environmentally friendly.
- Ease of Transfer: Digital X-ray images can be sent electronically to specialists or insurance companies, speeding up referral and claim processes.
Our trained professionals will place a small sensor in your mouth. The sensor is connected to a computer by a wire. The X-ray machine is positioned alongside your face and sends X-rays through your teeth and into the sensor, which records the image. The process is quick, painless, and hassle-free.
With Spokane Family Dental’s Digital X-ray Service, patients are assured of a diagnostic process that is not only safe and efficient but also eco-friendly. Our mission is to combine top-notch care with technologies that make procedures streamlined and comfortable for our patients.
