Dental x-rays are an integral aspect of dental care. X-rays allow dentists to gather useful insights that may not be visible to the naked eye. Some years back, dentists relied on conventional x-rays that were processed on film. Fast forward to today and digital x-rays, or low radiation dental x-rays, are taking over as the preferred form of imaging.
Low radiation dental x-rays offer numerous benefits to dentists and patients alike. As a dental practice, we’re proud to offer low radiation dental x-rays as a way of enhancing efficiency and increasing the comfort of our patients.

As a dental practice, we know that exposure to radiation and lengthy treatment times are valid concerns shared by many dental patients. As such, we have invested in digital radiography to alleviate these challenges and more.
