If there is a way to better patient outcomes, you bet we will be on it. At Advantage Dentistry in Kenmore, NY, our number one priority is helping our patients achieve optimal oral health. One of the pieces of technology that help us achieve this goal is digital x-ray.
Digital x-ray is an x-ray system that does not need a darkroom for development of the pictures. The pictures are instantly displayed on a computer monitor. This technology saves us a lot of time, saves our patients’ time, it facilitates more accurate treatment plans, and it makes communication a breeze.
Putting the image onto the computer allows us to use tools that give us a closer look than ever before. Software also allows us to see changes in the mouth that could have previously been missed by the naked eye. This means more accurate diagnoses, treatment, and better patient outcomes.
Being digital means that we can print, save, or send the image. We can refer back to it for future visits and know exactly what kind of changes we are looking for. They can also be sent to other doctors for second opinions or to insurance companies instantly.
Along with these fantastic benefits, digital x-ray uses much less radiation, so it is safer for the patient. To learn more about the technology we use here at Advantage Dentistry in Kenmore, NY, call us at (716) 877-2275 or visit our website, www.advantagedentistry.com.
