Palm Springs Family and Cosmetic Dentistry - Digital X-rays

At Palm Springs Family and Cosmetic Dental Practice, we have selected digital x-rays for our patients.  A benefit to the patient, the digital x-ray provides nearly 80% less radiation than a standard x-ray. This is due to the fact that the digital version of the x-ray is much more sensitive to this radiation and has been specifically designed with the patient in mind.

Digital x-rays are quickly becoming adopted by a large percentage of the dental industry. A digital x-ray allows the dentist to take an image of the tooth or teeth and put it into an imaging program. Within this imaging program, there are a number of tools that will allow Dr. Shepherd and the dental technicians to take a very close look at the teeth and surrounding structures with amazing accuracy.
