Digital Radiography

Our office uses Dexis digital radiography for the following reasons:

  • Less waiting time
  • Shorter appointments
  • More comfortable procedure due to unique sensor design
  • Reduced exposure to radiation (90% less radiation compared to traditional film)
  • Better understanding of treatment
  • Environmentally friendly – ie. No more film or processing chemicals

The digital images can be magnified 300x the normal size to enhance diagnosis, manipulated to correct contrast, and color-adjusted to reveal hidden problems. This also allows the x-rays to be displayed in a size and format that our patients can better see and understand. Our digital sensors have the same superior image quality as film according to the ADA Seal of Acceptance requirements. Lastly, digital radiography is a “green” choice since no caustic chemicals are required to process the images.
