Dr. I. Costache & Associates – Your Bloor and Dufferin dentist utilizes X-rays to quickly and safely assess your dental health
What is the foundation of your smile? Digital X-ray technology provides a faster and safer way to closely examine your teeth. These X-rays speed treatment and provide a more accurate diagnosis of your teeth.
What are the advantages of digital X-rays? The advancement of digital x-ray technology has meant many advantages over traditional x-rays. Some of these are outlined here:
- digital x-rays are much faster than traditional x-rays
- there is much less radiation
- the images can be enhanced for a more thorough diagnosis
- images are stored digitally for easy retrieval and comparison
How does it work?
It’s quick and easy! We place a small sensor in your mouth which is connected to a computer with a tiny wire. An x-ray beam is then sent through your teeth which records the image of your teeth and sends it to a computer. The sensor can be re-positioned to photograph other sections of your teeth.
