Digital X-Rays

Instant, Clearer X-Rays with Digital Imaging

At Syosset Dental, we’ve invested in digital radiography to help make your appointments safer, more efficient, and more precise. Your health is important to us, so you can relax knowing that digital radiography exposes you to 80 percent less radiation than traditional X-rays. We also utilize intraoral digital sensors, as well as digital Panorex imaging for full-mouth screening. Panorex imaging is particularly helpful for patients who have a severe gag reflex and may have trouble tolerating intraoral cameras or sensors.

Advantages of Digital X-Rays

Digital X-rays are immediately viewable, so instead of waiting for chemical processing as you would with traditional X-rays, we can review the images immediately on a computer screen. No chemical processing also means that there is no chemical processing waste, which can be harmful to the environment. Digital X-rays save time because images are easily transferrable to a specialist, insurance company, or other office at your request.

As a part of our dedication to patient education, digital radiography makes it easy for us to show you vivid images of your X-ray on a large monitor. Using the chair-side monitor, we can explain procedures and illustrate issues so that you can make informed decisions about your dental treatment.

More precise digital dental imaging

Dental X-rays don’t need to be taken every time you visit, but when they are necessary, digital radiography offers a number of benefits over the traditional method.
