Our Aloha / Beaverton dental office uses digital radiography for taking pictures of your teeth and oral tissues. Digital radiography replaces traditional x-rays by allowing a computer to take an image of your tissues utilizing far less radiation and providing images instantaneously on a computer screen right in front of you.
The image is sent directly to a computer where it is stored with other patient record information. This image can also be emailed to another provider or specialist should the need arise.
The images can be evaluated immediately with advanced, computer assisted tools. The software also magnifies the image so tooth problems are readily apparent and more easily analyzed than traditional film x-ray images.
This new technology enables the doctors to treat problems at a much earlier stage.
