What Are the Benefits of Digital X-Rays?

Periodontist Pompano Beach

Have you ever been to a dentist office where the X-ray procedure was very invasive and aggressive? Unfortunately, this is most people’s experiences, but it doesn’t have to be this way. At Single Visit Dentistry, we work with our patients to exceed expectations and bring genuine comfort to a usually uncomfortable situation. We offer digital X-rays, which are not only less invasive, but they also produce less radiation than traditional methods. Digital X-rays can work to detect TMJ diagnosis, Cephalometric diagnosis, frontal skull issues, CT scan bite analysis, facial and beauty balance, and so much more.  

When we’re discussing the benefits of digital X-rays, we have a whole handful of examples. With modern technology available, this machinery is changing the way dentists, doctors, and orthodontists do their jobs. Some of the most well-known benefits include the following:   

  • Significantly less radiation exposure for patients up to 70%
  • Immediate viewing options  
  • No need to wait for images  
  • Better visibility 
  • Options to enhance images digitally to better see possible issues  
  • No chemical processing  
  • Can view the image anywhere  
  • Larger viewing for patients  
  • Sent directly to insurance companies  
  • Environmentally friendly because of the lack of chemicals or film 

These are only a few of the many benefits of using a digital X-ray machine. These machines can do so much for people and they add plenty of benefits for the environment, efficiency, timeliness, and more.  Some of the advantages that people know less about is that the digital X-ray machinery can actually see more of the entire jaw, which then makes it easier for professionals to detect any mishaps or issues. Additionally, being able to see the whole jaw allows medical experts to see the bigger picture. One of the biggest benefits is that for those who have sensitive gag reflexes, there are digital options that can X-ray outside of the mouth.  

The quickness of these X-rays also saves time, especially when there is an emergency. When you’re looking to work with your insurance company quickly, you don’t want to wait for the images to be processed, nor do you want to have poor quality imagery. Instead, with digital X-rays, you can rest at ease knowing that they’re immediately uploaded, processed, reviewed, and if applicable, sent directly to your insurance provider. This can move the insurance claims process along much faster.  

If you’re looking for digital X-rays in your area, you’re in the right place. At Single Visit Dentistry, we pride ourselves in offering some of the top advanced technologies in medical care to date. We offer superior diagnosis and treatment options that are less invasive, more patient-friendly, and much more efficient. We believe that you should spend less time, less energy, and less anxiety on matters such as dentistry. Instead, allow us to help you with ease, promptness, and care.  

What many people don’t know is that we have had to change our methods time and time again. As a company with years of experience, we were used to using VHS systems, DVD players, and Blue Ray players. Now, we have medical technology that blows all of that out of the water. To have the best results, diagnoses, and plans of treatment, contact Single Visit Dentistry today at 954-782-9111. We can’t wait to help you receive what you need.
