South East London dentist offers new digital xrays.

29 / 07 / 2012

Xrays have been used for almost a hundred years now to inspect the condition of bones inside the body. The technology has come a long way now and new digital xrays make the process easier, quicker and safer than ever. Save time, money and your teeth by exploring what this new technology can offer. Visit your South East London dentist to find out how digital xrays can help you.

While your dentist’s regular visual inspection will find any surface problems, with the help of an xray your dentist is unable to see every angle of the tooth and what is happening on the inside. Xrays are used for the dentist to see every aspect of the tooth and study whether there is any internal damage or problems on hidden areas of the tooth (such as between the teeth or under the gum line). It is not necessary to have a routine xray but your dentist will advise one if you are experiencing any unexplained dental symptoms or they want a closer examination.

Traditional xrays, will useful, were a slow process. The xray film would need to be sent off for development each time, meaning you and your dentist had to wait several days at minimum before finding out any issues. New digital xrays can be connected directly to your dentist’s wifi network in order to securely upload the xrays images directly to the computer so you and your dentist can inspect the images within seconds. The images can be enlarged and inspected in greater detail when necessary. And special software can show any changes in your teeth over time by comparing different xray images. Digital xrays also use lower quantities of radiation, lowering any possible risks.
