Your Boise dentist and the staff at Summit Dental Group rely on digital X-rays to help us process images at incredibly high speeds to diagnose and treat a variety of Boise dental conditions. They also provide you with the ability to view your digital X-rays in real time while we examine your mouth. A chairside computer monitor lets you see these images as we refine areas of concern to ensure an accurate diagnosis.
Of course! They emit 80 percent less radiation than exposure-type X-rays and provide detailed images to improve diagnosis and treatment. We can now detect Boise dental problems in their earliest stages without subjecting you to unnecessary radiation. The amount of radiation released by digital X-rays is “negligible,” which means the amount is so small, that it can be safely disregarded.
Digital X-rays are safe enough for children and pregnant women. When your Boise dentist and the staff at Summit Dental Group discover dental caries in their earliest stages, we can then initiate treatment measures that will effectively prevent cavity development, tooth decay, and potential tooth loss. Patient appointment lengths are shortened with digital X-rays as well, because images are immediately viewable and do not require the exposure time associated with old-style X-rays.
When it comes to detecting cancerous tumor in their early stages, digital X-ray technology offers vast improvements over film X-rays because of its cutting-edge image processing capability. Early detection of oral cancer and Boise dental caries is the best way to prevent any type of Boise dental health problem from exceeding the treatable stage.
