Digital X-Rays in Dentistry


digital x-rays in dentistry Pemroke Duxbury MADigital x-rays in dentistry take advantage of advancements that improve the comfort and safety of our patients, and raise the level of care we provide them. If these advancements also save time and allow us to identify and provide the best treatment sooner, all the better. This is why we use digital x-ray instead of conventional dental x-rays.

Digital x-rays in dentistry provides a greater diagnostic value while decreasing exposure to radiation. Radiation exposure during a digital x-ray is about 70-80% less than that of a conventional x-ray.

When your digital dental x-ray is taken in our office, the images are sent directly to a computer and immediately available to view, making digital imaging far more efficient than conventional dental x-ray techniques. We can review your x-ray images with you during your appointment and zoom in on any potential problem areas so you and Dr. O’Keeffe can discuss them. The images are available in many formats, allowing us to gain more diagnostic information to ensure any problems are detected and dealt with as early as possible.

Dental x-rays are necessary to detect disease or damage not visible during a regular dental exam. Digital x-ray technology allows us to make a necessity for the health of your teeth even safer and more effective. If at any point you are in need of the services of a specialist, your digital x-ray images can be sent directly to a practitioner we trust for referrals. We are able to provide most services and treatments necessary to keep your smile beautiful and healthy, and can determine the best course of treatment more quickly and effectively thanks to our use of state-of-the-art digital imaging.

Digital x-rays are just one of the many services we are proud to offer our patients in our comfortable, welcoming offices. If you are in need of dental services in the Pembroke, MA area, call for an appointment and fill out a New Patient Registration form available on our About Us page.
