Digital X-rays in Fremont
Digital x-rays use a specialized image sensor to capture x-rays, and display them on a digital device for analysis. Mission Smiles Dentistry uses digital x-rays because they offer a variety of benefits compared to traditional x-rays.
- Digital x-rays can be viewed almost instantly, whereas film-based x-rays require up to 30 minutes for photo development. This saves you time in the waiting room – and in the dentist’s chair!
- Digital x-rays also expose patients to less radiation. Digital x-ray systems reduce radiation exposure by up to 90%.
- The result is a highly-detailed image of the mouth. Filters can be applied and specific areas can be zoomed in – allowing for easier diagnosis of common dental problems and determine the very best treatment for each case.
