At Haring Dental Group we know that state-of-the-art dental technologies allow us to give patients a high level of dental healthcare and greater patient comfort. We use only digital, intraoral X-ray technology because they are an excellent diagnostic tool, are better for our patients and better for the environment.
Digital X-rays are faster and more efficient than traditional radiographs. First, an electronic sensor (instead of film) is placed in the patient’s mouth to capture the image. The digital image is then relayed to a computer, where it is available for viewing. The procedure is much faster than processing conventional film. The sensor is more sensitive to X-rays than film is so the radiation dose is greatly reduced. Because there are no films, there are no chemicals used for processing, which means no chemicals to dispose.
Intraoral X-rays provide a lot of detail and allow our dentists to find cavities, check the health of the tooth root and bone surrounding the tooth, check the status of developing teeth, and monitor the general health of your teeth and jawbone.
Using great diagnostic tools allows Dr. Haring, Dr. Sophie and Dr. Kelly to provide focused dental healthcare. Giving patients the best care possible is what we do, and we love it!
