For the last 8 years, Bradford Family Dentistry has been going digital. One of our recent advances is the Dexis Digital X-ray Sensor. Today, we devote the blog to the advantages this state-of-the-art technology brings to our office, and more importantly, to our patients. Photo credit: Dexis.com
Advantages of Digital Images
There are several advantages of using digital images over film or conventional images. Perhaps the most important distinction is that digital x-rays are more precise than the alternative. Images can be made more clear, magnified, and colourized with the digital sensor. This allows dental professionals to determine a more accurate diagnosis and treatment plan for every patient. Even the tiniest area of decay is made more visible with a digital image.
While our staff has every reason to be enthusiastic about this addition in the office, our patients should be too! Here are a few of the benefits of the Dexis Digital x-ray Sensor:
- Environmentally friendly. With no chemicals or film involved, the digital x-ray is one way Bradford Family Dentistry has gone green.
- Significantly reduced radiation exposure! This benefit is huge, and for obvious reasons. Improve your health without harming it. Reduced radiation means better long-term health.
- Efficiency and speed! Less waiting time for us means less waiting time for you, our patients! Enjoy the luxury of a shorter appointment, plus a faster reading and diagnosis (if any).
- Increased comfort. Experience increased comfort during x-ray procedures. Little hassle, little harm.
Our hope, as always, is that such technological advances will continue to improve your patient experience with Bradford Family Dentistry. With increased comfort, speed, and results, what is not to love about the Dexis Digital X-ray Sensor? We are asking ourselves that same question. In the spirit of a confident smile!
