At Dr. Kenneth Cho Dentistry, we are happy to be able to provide you with digital x-rays for your teeth. These x-rays are available to all of our patients and we believe you will enjoy, especially since they are considered to be much safer than traditional x-rays. In fact, when you have digital x-rays performed, you do not have to wait days or weeks for the images to be developed. The images from the digital x-rays are delivered instantly via a computer screen.
One of the biggest benefits of using this new technology is that dentists can easily and quickly compare side by side images of your teeth on the computer screen. This means that we are able to pull up your previously digital x-ray and look to see if a cavity has progressed or if gum disease is starting to develop. We can quickly identify problem areas and then provide you with a solution.
If you would like to learn more about our digital x-rays and how they are beneficial, contact our La Habra office today.
Why Should I Have X-Rays?
X-rays are an important part of your dental health and should be part of your dental routine. If your dentist cannot take x-rays of your mouth, he or she will not know what problems may exist. Small cavities and gum disease may stay hidden in the spaces between your teeth and the only way to identify them is to have an x-ray taken of them. These problems are often invisible to the naked eye.
When you come into our La Habra, CA dental office for a dental exam, we will take digital x-rays of your teeth. These images will then be evaluated by Dr. Cho who will determine if there are any issues. If you do have a cavity or gum disease, we will determine the best treatment plan for you.
Benefits of Digital X-Rays
There are a number of different reasons why you should have digital x-rays over traditional x-rays. Below, we will explore these different benefits.
1. Less Radiation Exposure
Overall, digital x-rays have less radiation exposure than traditional x-rays, which means you will be less likely to have any adverse reactions. Younger patients should not be exposed to radiation, so this is a good alternative for them.
2. Faster Than Traditional X-Rays
Digital x-rays are much faster than traditional x-rays. In fact, you do not have to wait a long time to receive the results of your x-rays. Once the digital images are captured, they are instantly available to view on the computer and your dentist will be able to see them immediately.
In addition, your technician can tell if the picture was taken correctly or if it needs to be retaken. This saves time because previously, you would have to re-enter the x-ray room and redo the pictures if they developed poorly.
Lastly, these images can be sent instantly via email to other dentists and surgeons when it is warranted.
3. Transfer Records Quickly
If you need to explore additional dental options due to a specialized service, you may need to have your dental files sent to the new dentist. Our La Habra office is able to instantly transfer the files and send them to your new dentist.
