Cupertino Pediatric Dentistry provides digital radiography. Using state-of-the-art digital x-rays allows us to diagnose problems quickly and accurately, which creates more specific treatment plans. This also helps to maximize patient comfort and reduce the patient’s exposure to radiation. Digital panoramic radiographs are also available for children to evaluate growth and development for orthodontic assessments and teens for evaluation of 3rd molars (wisdom teeth).
BENEFITS OF DIGITAL RADIOGRAPHY
- High Quality: The digital radiography device can take a picture of your teeth and instantly display the image on a computer screen. The on-screen image will look like an X-ray, but it can be displayed at 400 percent. It allows a dentist to zoom into specific areas to gain a more accurate diagnosis.
- Efficiency: Digital radiography takes less time and provides immediate observation of radiographic images.
- Less Radiation for your child
