Digital X-Rays

Blue Coral Pediatric Dentistry & Orthodontics is proud to use only the most up-to-date digital X-Rays technology. We use the most precise digital imaging equipment that requires the least ionizing radiation exposure. Digital x-rays have all the advantages of traditional x-rays but emit 90% less radiation than usual.

X-rays are used as a primary diagnostic tool in conjunction with an oral exam to identify dental problems in the early stages. Early detection can prevent more expensive and serious procedures.

Why Do You Need Dental X-Rays?

Is it possible for the dentist to just examine my child’s teeth and find cavities? Visual inspection is a good way to spot surface decay. However, x-rays can be used to identify cavities that cannot be seen. Once we have detected problems, x-rays can provide more information. An x-ray shows your Blue Coral Pediatric Dentistry & Orthodontics dentist how far the cavity has spread and the best possible treatment opportunities.

Benefits of Digital X-Rays

The practice of dentistry has been greatly improved by digital radiography. Images captured instantly are available in high resolution in a large format, which allows us to diagnose and evaluate them immediately. This allows us to focus on your child and make the visit more efficient. It is possible to retake an image immediately if necessary. Digital x-rays are more sensitive than traditional x-rays and require 90% less radiation. This minimizes patient exposure. Digital formats allow our Blue Coral Pediatric Dentistry & Orthodontics dentists to electronically send and receive images, allowing for faster consultations with other doctors if needed.
