In the world of modern dentistry, technology is advancing at an incredible rate. Dental appointments have been a inconvenience for employers for many years now, particularly if their staff are needing to take a whole morning, afternoon or even the entire day off work because of an oral procedure. But things are changing in dental surgeries which mean that dental procedures can be carried out quicker than ever. With the majority leading busy lifes surely anything that can reduce the time that patients need to spend in the dental surgery is good news. Dentists can fit more patients in and solve their pain problems more efficiantly.
The use of digital x-rays is at the heart of this change. Traditional x-rays have done a fine job for many years but they did have their drawbacks. For one thing, every single x-ray would have to be developed by expert staff in a special lab, This is a lengthy process and can often lead to the need for further appointments, which can be time consuming. There are also associated problems with overexposure and ruined film. Digital x-rays can be processed immediately for the dentist to examine solving patients dental problems quickly and easily.
X-rays can highlight hidden problems. They can reveal the extent of dental damage such as tooth decay (cavities), bone-loss due to disease, check the growth of teeth, the condition of the mouth’s occlusion or ‘bite’, and continue to monitor any previous work done. The results of digital x-rays can be seen instantly on the computer screen giving you answers to your questions.
Digital x-rays also address the issue of safety. They require about 80 per cent less radiation meaning they are safer for both the patient and the dentist, who use them every day, Making them a quick, easy and safe option every time.
