Digital X-rays

Digital Radiographs offer dramatically improved safety and diagnostic capabilities for the dental patient and the dentist.  Technological advances in x-ray technology provide multiple benefits from safety to improved treatment outcomes.

Benefits of Digital X-rays:

  • Safety - Because digital x-rays use a highly sensitive digital sensor instead of traditional film, the amount of radiation needed to create an image is reduced by up to 90% compared to most older film-based systems.

  • Time Savings – Digital images from x-rays are captured instantly and are immediately visible on a computer screen as compared to traditional films which take time to be processed like traditional photographs.  This decreases the time you spend in the dental chair.

  • Better outcomes – Improved clarity increases the dentist’s ability to diagnose and treat conditions.   Dr. Ostler uses software tools to magnify the image,  change the contrast, and sharpen the image.

  • Improved portability When Dr. Ostler refers you to a specialist like an endodontist or oral surgeon, she can email high quality digital x-ray and photographic images instantly so you may not need additional x-rays at another office.
