The field of dentistry has progressed significantly over the last few decades. New technological advances are bringing new methods and materials to market that are allowing for more comprehensive care. There are numerous benefits to these processes, if your provider chooses to adopt them. Not every dentist invests in the latest in dental technology, to make the effort to choose the caregiver who is right for you.
At Brighton Family Dental in Brighton, MA, we understand the importance of technology in our field of science. Digital x-rays are one way that we take your experience seriously, as this approach emits less radiation. In addition, digital imagery allows your dental provider to capture more radiographs than with film, and in less time. Intraoral scanners from iTero® give your caregiver the ability to look at a three-dimensional visualization of your mouth. Make the right choice for your smile and learn about the ways that these processes help you!
A Less Invasive Form Of Radiography
X-rays serve a highly valuable purpose within the world of dentistry. The visual examination during your visit is one of the pillars of your checkup, yet your provider might need a deeper look. Radiography allows for imagery to be taken that shows the weak areas of your enamel. This process is also important in tracking the growth of your wisdom teeth.
Since traditional x-rays use radiation in order to produce images, you are exposed to a level of contact. This amount of exposure is generally accepted as safe, but there is a better option. Digital x-rays emit a fraction of the radiation and bring additional benefits. This process is quicker and also allows for the capture of more radiographs than with traditional methods!
