Home/Technology/Digital X-Rays

How do digital x-rays benefit you? Less exposure to radiation, more rapid results, clear and precise views of your teeth and gums, and the list goes on.

For the first time in the 100-year history of dental X-rays (radiography), an extraordinary new technology surpasses the diagnostic abilities of traditional film. It does so with substantially less radiation exposure to you—and to us. This system has truly amazing diagnostic tools, making the image quality simply unmatched.

Lockheed Martin, the aerospace manufacturer of the Magellan Venus Spacecraft and the Hubble Telescope, designed the digital X-ray sensor that is the heart of this technology. The sensor is very special as it has a uniquely shaped design for your optimum comfort. No more sharp edges like the old film had. This allows for increased positioning accuracy.

The digital x-ray system at Scottsdale Smile Center allows for the ability to instantly produce the very best possible diagnosis, and it produces up to 90% less radiation. Plus, since digital x-rays are relayed to a computer monitor, we are able to eliminate the use of developing chemicals that can be harmful to the environment. Digital x-rays are also more convenient: the images can be sent almost instantaneously to insurance providers for a quick response.
