Digital X-Rays In Thousand Oaks, CA

Digital X-Rays In Thousand Oaks, CA

A digital X-ray is a modern technology used in dentistry to capture images of your teeth, jawbone, and mouth without exposing you to radiation like traditional X-rays. A digital X-ray can help identify damage and disease that may not be visible to the naked eye. 


Benefits of Digital X-Rays

Digital X-rays provide several advantages over traditional film X-rays:

  1. Instant images: Digital images are immediately available for examination, and this enables us to make treatment decisions immediately.
  2. Reduced radiation exposure: Digital X-rays machines use up to 90% less radiation than traditional X-ray machines, and our office is equipped with the latest technology to minimize your risk of radiation exposure.
  3. Low cost: Digital X-rays are more economical than traditional film X-rays.
  4. Environmentally friendly: Digital X-rays are more eco-friendly, allowing us to do our part for the environment.

Digital X-Ray Technology Explained

Digital X-rays use a digital image capturing and processing system instead of traditional film. Dental X-ray image receptor plates are replaced with a flat-panel digital sensor that captures digital X-rays in the same way that a digital camera captures images.

The digital X-ray sensor captures the image and immediately transmits it to a computer in the treatment room. The dentist is able to view the image on a large computer monitor within seconds. The digital image capturing and processing system also eliminates the use of chemicals associated with developing traditional X-ray film.

Using digital X-rays, we will be able to:

  • Identify hidden tooth decay
  • Evaluate the health of your jawbone
  • Assess the alignment of your jaw
  • Assess the health of your surrounding tissue
  • Detect impacted teeth
  • Find infection, cysts, or tumors

Digital X-Ray Safety

When used properly, digital X-rays expose patients to far less radiation than traditional methods. The radiation from a digital X-ray machine is lower than that of a traditional film X-ray machine. 

Digital X-rays are safe and particularly useful because the images can be viewed immediately, improving patient-doctor communication and treatment planning.
