Digital Radiographs at North County Dental Services
2013-02-01 19:47:54 - North County Dental Services offers Potsdam, NY dental patients safe and convenient digital imaging technology.
Dr. Jeff Foerster of North County Dental Services offers Potsdam, NY and surrounding residents safe, digital radiographs, which lowers a dental patient’s radiation exposure by an astounding 80%. Digital radiographs make it possible to discover trouble that often can’t be seen with the naked eye.
Small areas of tooth decay below fillings, infections such as abscesses, bone loss due to
periodontal gum disease, some types of tumors, developmental abnormalities in younger children such as unerupted teeth, and the consequences of trauma are all visible in Dr. Jeff's radiographs. The result of the technology’s precision is swift, in-depth dental examinations.
Radiographs are faster than traditional film x-rays, so patients don’t need to wait long periods to learn about the results of the test. There’s no chemical processing or related waste involved, either. All images appear in large format on a computer screen.
Technical errors are easily correctable with the digital enhancement features built into the radiograph technology. Magnification options also make it possible for Dr. Jeff to zoom in on potential problem areas or brighten the image as necessary, which decreases the odds of having to return to the dentist for more dental images.
Computer storage of digital dental images makes it possible to compare future dental radiographs and study how conditions have changed or improved. This benefit enables Dr. Jeff and his patients to see the benefits of procedures and watch for improvements in dental health.
Digital prints, or copies, are available to patients upon request. Be sure to visit Dr. Jeff for your own radiograph-enhanced dental examination and keep your exposure to radiation at minimum, healthy levels. Such state-of-the-art technology is just one of the advantages North Country Dental Service patients enjoy.
