Reveal even the slightest problem
In the past traditional film was used by dentists to capture x-ray images. The development process was labor-intensive and time-consuming. Handling of the images was another issue. Digital x-ray brings an enormous advantage – no waiting for the image – in that it pops up on the monitor a few seconds after the scan, enabling enlargements, color adjustment or detailed enhancement.
The resulting image is presented to the patient as a film printout or in electronic form - on a disk or other storage media. Digital imaging is not only fast but also long-lasting. In the past, if the film was damaged, you had to repeat the x-ray scan and be exposed to additional radiation. After a few years, the film had less contrast, and the image was lost. But the digital x-ray image maintains its quality indefinitely. Digital x-ray is also environmentally friendly (eliminating the unnecessary printouts that ended up in the trash in the past where the decomposition process took decades).
Focused on detail
The digital lens system enables the enlargement of important details – another advantage over traditional x-ray image. This allows for greater precision and higher detail, with less radiation, enabling your dentist to adopt a better, and more responsible, resolution with respect to further treatment.
DenOptix® reduces the level of harmful radiation by up to 50% compared to the traditional film-based x-ray devices.
Schill Dental Clinic offers its digital x-ray services to the public
Even to those who are not our regular patients.
Our patients obtain a panoramic x-ray scan as a standard part of their initial exam. This enables us to obtain a complete overview of the health of your teeth and the hard tissues of the upper and lower jaw.
