Dr. Shvartsman has been using digital dental X-rays for over a decade.
At LI Center for Healthier Dentistry, we are always updating our X-ray sensors and software to achieve the lowest possible radiation levels as well as the best diagnostic results.
The many advantages of digital dental X-rays over conventional film X-rays:
- Our dental X-rays have ninety-eight-percent less radiation than conventional film X-rays.
- Our dental X-rays use the lowest possible radiation settings.
- A zoom-in feature allows us to see more detail for an improved diagnosis.
- A contrast changing ability allows for improved diagnosis.
- There is no environmental waste from chemicals and lead.
- An instant image feature helps with faster diagnosis and treatment.
- Innovative software with decay-finding algorithms helps to identify even the smallest cavities.
- The X-rays are displayed on a television screen for the patients.
Digital X-rays use an electronic sensor to capture the image. The digital images are then stored on a computer. The images are backed-up every night. They are also encrypted and stored off-site for safe keeping.
Dental X-rays help reveal:
- Bone loss.
- Cancerous and non-cancerous tumors.
- Decay between the teeth.
- Developmental abnormalities.
- Poor tooth and root positions.
- Problems inside a tooth or below the gum line.
- Infections and abscesses.
- Root fractures.
Detecting and treating dental problems at an early stage will save you time, money, and unnecessary discomfort.
How often are digital x-rays taken?
Dr. Alex Shvartsman determines the frequency and type of X-rays on the basis of each patient’s individual decay history, risk factors, and decay susceptibility. Some patients may need check-up X-rays every six months, while others may need them every five years.
