The Digital Advantage
In addition to considerably reducing the level of radiation that patients are exposed to, digital x-rays allow for improved diagnostics and are even a more environmentally friendly option than traditional x-rays.
With digital x-rays, the images are sent directly to the computer, allowing your Agave Dental dentist to view them almost instantly, reducing the time you spend in the dentist’s chair. Since the images are digital, we can zoom in and enlarge the image to get a closer look at anything that might be concerning.
Your images can be stored directly in your electronic patient file, which means that we can immediately pull up older images for comparison if we are monitoring an issue or checking development (a feature that is especially valuable when treating children).
Since no chemicals or film are needed for processing (and no space is needed for film storage), digital x-rays are a much more eco-friendly solution compared to traditional x-rays, a fact that both our staff and our patients appreciate.
