Digital radiography (digital x-ray) is the latest dental technology that is used to take oral x-rays. Traditional ways of taking dental x-rays caused worries about radiation. Patients felt biting down on x-ray film cumbersome and difficult and dentist’s had to wait for the film to be developed. Above all the image was not as clear as digital ones making it difficult for the dentist to read.
The digital x-rays offered at our office reduce your exposure to radiation. According to the documentation provided by the manufacturer, the digital x-rays used at Pleasant Smiles, Methuen produce up to 90 percent less radiation than traditional film x-ray machines.
The unique, ergonomic shape of the our X-rays Platinum sensor fits more comfortably in patients’ mouths and against the anatomy. Dentist can move about the mouth efficiently which can mean a more accurate procedure and less retakes due to patient movement.
Digital x-ray images are sharp, clear and highly detailed. Images can be stored and sent electronically thus speeding the transmission of the patient’s dental exam to the insurance provider and hence reducing the delay in dental work.
The panoramic X-ray provides the dentist with an ear-to-ear two-dimensional view of both the upper and lower jaw. Unlike bitewing X-rays that need to be taken every 6 months, digital panoramic X-rays are generally taken on an as-needed basis.
The most common uses for digital panoramic X-rays are to reveal the position and orientation of wisdom teeth and to check whether dental implants will affect any vital structures. Panoramic X-rays are an important diagnostic tool and are also valuable for planning future treatment. They are safer than other types of X-rays because less radiation enters the body.
The intra-oral camera is an amazing diagnostic tool for viewing different angles in the mouth that we would not have been able to just a few years ago.
Our treatment rooms have both intro-oral cameras and patient computer monitors. The intra-oral cameras allow Dr. Bajwa to view your teeth and gums in precise detail. These images could be seen on the patient computer monitor allowing Dr. Bajwa to communicate information about diagnosis and treatment options with patients. Thanks to this latest dental technology, better overall patient education and more effective communication can be achieved.
Patient health and safety is our number one priority. We utilize state-of-the-art sterilization on all instruments and equipment for your guaranteed safety and health as recommended by the American Dental Association and the Centers for Disease Control.
We employ hospital grade cleanliness standards and sterilization techniques. All instruments and handpieces are put through a multi-step procedure to ensure that they are sterile for the next person.
