Temporomandibular Joint (TMJ) Imaging
Await word on new ct scanner info from client:
While our patients are understandably concerned about x-ray exposure, x-rays are a valuable and necessary resource to detect dental disease. That said, one might ask; How many x-rays are necessary?.... Should I have x-rays taken every visit or only when an issue or pain arises?
X-rays are quite safe especially with the advent of fast x-ray films and machines. Our technicians use only enough exposure required for a quality diagnostic film. Dental x-rays are even safer with the use of sophisticated computers, which can reduce your x-ray radiation by an additional 80 percent. So with these new computers your visits are safer than ever. With this significant reduction in radiation, you can rest assured that you are receiving the best dental care in the safest way possible. It is called Digital Radiography (Digital Dental X-Rays).
Our dental practice has always provided the most up-to-date care to our patients. Our chief concern has always been to maintain your dental health with the finest care possible. When we found out that we could also make your x-rays safer, it was an easy decision to incorporate Digital Radiology (Digital Dental X-Rays) into our practice. We feel that you deserve the best and we do our best to provide it. Our newest acquisition is the Vatex PaX-Duo3D Cone Beam CT. The ProMax represents the new generation of maxillofacial x-ray units.
