Digital dental X-Rays

At Carlton Dental Care we use low-dose digital x-ray equipment which lowers an individuals’ exposure to radiation by up to 75%.

When digital dental x-rays are taken, they are transferred instantly to our computer system and are available for viewing.

There are many advantages to this type of x-ray:

  • It is useful clinically to be able to zoom in and focus on important areas and details on the films taken.
  • The images are easily transferred electronically to dental specialists or other dentists making clinical records more portable.
  • This technology replaces the need for environmentally harmful chemicals used in developing the old plain film.
