We take your comfort and safety very seriously, which is one of the reasons Dr. Bartels has chosen digital x-rays for his patients. Dental x-rays have always been an indispensable tool for diagnosing conditions that develop inside your teeth or under your gums. Digital dental x-rays take the diagnostic process to a whole new level.
Digital x-rays reduce your radiation exposure by about 80 percent compared to film x-rays. The highly detailed images produced with digital x-rays allow our dentist to spot small problems like tooth decay and treat them before they damage your oral health.
We can share the x-ray with you on your chairside monitor so you can see the same details we see. And since the images are digital, there are no hazardous chemicals to dispose of to pollute the environment.
