Digital X-Ray data is stored digitally, and can be pulled up easily at the chair during your dental appointment. This gives both the patient and the dentist a better idea of what's going on inside the mouth.

Why use digital x-rays?
Digital x-rays give extremely detailed images of your whole mouth. We can enlarge specific areas to help the dentist better understand your oral health needs. Digital x-rays allow us to detect problems earlier, preventing developing issues from worsening.
Are digital x-rays safe?

How frequently do you need an x-ray?
This varies from person to person, depending on oral health needs.
Some people need them every six months. For others, every year or even every other year is sufficient. We'll let you know if you need an x-ray at your next appointment.
