Digital Dental X-Rays
Incorporating state-of-the-art dental technology into our practice allows us to provide our patients with latest treatment options, the most advanced techniques, and a safer experience, including digital X-rays. Our Hawthorne dental X-rays expert may recommend digital X-rays at your next checkup or appointment for other dental treatments.
Digital X-rays make the process of taking dental X-rays safer, faster, and easier. If you are a candidate for dental X-rays, our Hawthorne digital X-rays expert will take them in much the same way as we take traditional X-rays. The film used for the bitewings and other types of X-rays is similar to that of traditional X-rays, but it contains a digital sensor. The sensor immediately sends the image to our computer. This allows us to visualize oral structures more easily, highlight pertinent features, and share the information with you in a form that is easier to see and understand.

Because digital X-rays use 90 percent less radiation than traditional dental X-rays, they may be safer especially for those who are concerned about radiation or who have regular X-rays. They can also result in less chair time for you. Our expert in dental X-rays in Hawthorne can have your images ready to view almost immediately. They are higher quality images, too, and we can adjust the color, contrast, and brightness of each image to better highlight important features.
After your digital images have been taken, our expert in digital X-rays in Hawthorne can store them, review them, compare them with past images or even share them with other specialists who are currently involved in your care. This can eliminate the need for mailing records and may even offer a more private way to manage your sensitive dental information.
