Digital X-rays

Utilizing advanced digital X-ray technology in our Colorado Springs pediatric dental practice is a crucial aspect of providing the safest, most up-to-date and convenient treatment options for your child. Here's why digital X-ray technology is the best treatment possible for your child compared to traditional films:

Is a digital X-ray really safer?

We care about your child’s health and well-being, therefore we know that you are concerned with reducing the amount of radiation exposure and digital X-rays is the solution. While dental X-rays typically involve very low levels of radiation, the cumulative effect over time is a concern.  Digital X-rays can reduce radiation exposure by up to 80 percent!

What are the advantages of digital X-rays?

  • Enhanced Comfort: Unlike traditional X-rays that require biting down on a sharp piece of film, digital X-rays are much more comfortable for your child.  
  • Shorter Appointment Times: With digital X-rays, overall there's no need to wait for film development, making the entire checkup process shorter and more efficient. This means less time in the dental chair for your child, reducing any potential anxiety or restlessness.
  • Improved Diagnostic Accuracy: Digital images can be enlarged and manipulated, providing the dentist with a clear, more detailed view of your child's teeth. This enhances diagnostic accuracy and allows for better treatment planning. 
  • Better Patient Understanding: By viewing the digital images on an enlarged screen, your child can better understand the importance of dental care. They can see their teeth up close and gain insight into why maintaining oral health is crucial. Plus, a digital X-rays can be formatted within enhanced dental software like Pearl AI for simplier education purposes.
  • Environmental Benefits: It’s earth friendly!  Digital X-rays eliminate the need for harmful chemicals used in traditional film processing, making them eco-friendly and better for the environment.
