Digital X-Rays

Dental X-Rays in Knoxville

Our up to date digital system is safer for you because it uses less radiation than conventional X-ray techniques. It enables us to examine your X-rays instantly on our computer screen without having to wait for X-ray films to develop. Digital X-rays allow us to monitor and diagnose problems and determine proper treatment options.

Benefits of Digital Dental X-Rays

  • Exposes the patient to much less radiation than traditional X-rays.
  • Offers better and more reliable imaging results, enabling the dentist to instantly detect abnormalities in teeth, gums, and enamel as well as tumorous growths and cavities.
  • Gray-scale resolution allows for a more detailed, accurate analysis.
  • Immediately transfers images to a monitor so that the dentist can review and explain the information to the patient.
  • Images can be enlarged, adjusted, and saved for future reference.
  • Offers the ability to digitally compare your X-rays with one another.
  • Reduction of waste and other harmful chemicals.

INTRAORAL CAMERA

The intraoral camera is extremely helpful for diagnosing dental conditions such as tooth decay and cracked teeth. A picture is worth a thousand words!

Using a small radiographic camera that is only slightly larger than a pen, we can efficiently capture images of each tooth. This technology eliminates the need for developing or chemical processing of the images. Instead, they appear instantly on a computer screen as each scan is completed so that they can be showcased within minutes. By shifting the angle of the imaging wand, the dentist can capture every surface of every tooth and provide you with immediate results.
