We are excited to announce a new addition to our office! We invested in the state of the art PlanMeca® ProMax® digital radiography machine that reduces the radiation associated with traditional X-rays by over 80%. It safely provides sharp, high quality images of all of your teeth at the same time. The best part of the ProMax® is that it allows us to take X-rays from outside of your mouth – no more gagging! Not only is it more comfortable for adults and children, it's also extremely accurate for our dentists to use.
As soon as a digital x-ray is taken, it is instantly viewed on the screen. As our dental office is fully-digital and paperless, all of the x-ray images are immediately saved into your digital chart. Digital X-rays can be sent electronically to other dental specialists and to insurance companies. Digital x-rays can be enlarged by the dentist to see even the smallest details.
