Digital XRays
Dr. Janette Larsen D.M.D. xrays dentistry san diego ca

Digital Radiography is similar in result to traditional x-rays but with the major benefit of reducing your exposure to radiation by 90% as well as being faster and more comfortable for you. The digital x-ray is produced by placing into your mouth a sensor that looks like a piece of film with a wire attached to it. This sensor is positioned according to what has to be x-rayed. The x-ray is taken and immediately a computer generated image appears on a screen right before your eyes. Because these images are digital they can be enlarged and enhanced. This provides the doctor with an even better and clearer picture with which to make a more accurate diagnosis.

She's never made an unnecessary recommendation and even helped me interpret the diagnoses of another dentist I went to see, a Groupon that seemed too good to be true - and was!
