Digital Radiography in Copperas Cove
X-rays have been a crucial part of dental care for many years now, allowing doctors to identify and treat concerns that are inaccessible to the naked eye. However, the traditional process of capturing them on film came with several significant pitfalls. The images had to be developed slowly in a darkroom with hazardous chemicals, resulting in patients having to wait to see their results. Then, bulky filing systems were required to store them, making them difficult to access and more environmentally wasteful. Finally, the radiation exposure patients had to undergo was significant and potentially harmful.
Thankfully, digital radiography has transformed this process for the better here at Benchmark Family Dental, making it faster, safer, and much more comfortable overall. Now, our doctors use a small sensor that instantly captures high-resolution images of your unique smile and transfers them to our computer system in a matter of seconds. Before you know it, you’ll be viewing your teeth on a convenient chairside monitor – in fact, we can rotate the X-ray, magnify certain areas, and even add color-coding to improve your understanding of the sight.
Are you seeing another specialist who needs to view the dental X-rays we’ve captured? Does your insurance company require them before providing deserved benefits? No problem – reproducing and transferring digital X-rays is a fast and simple process. The lack of hazardous chemicals and physical storage makes the process much more environmentally friendly as well, and the technology allows our team to reduce radiation exposure by up to 90%!
