2-D Digital Dental X-Rays

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.
