Digital dental xrays, also referred to as radiographs, provide crisp detailed images of your teeth and surrounding structures. Digital xrays have much less radiation than conventional xrays and allow for immediate viewing, better detail and easy transfer compared to conventional xrays. Lowell Tooth Docs is proud to offer this service to our patients.
Conventional dental xrays required film that needed to be developed, which could take significant time. Digital xrays are available instantly, so there is no wait time for results. Digital xrays allow for manipulation of contrast and brightness to see areas more clearly, as well as measurements that can help with tracking bone loss, measuring the length of your tooth for a root canal and to help with planning for an implant placement.
