The safety of our patients at Garrison Family Dentistry of Smithville, MO is of the most importance to us. This is why we like to use advanced technology in our practice and why we have implemented the digital x-ray.
The digital x-ray has many advantages over the standard x-ray systems of the past, and one of them is safety. The digital x-ray uses much less radiation than the standard x-ray systems. It is a much safer process for the patient now. The digital x-rays are also in fact, digital. So there is no more waiting for the images to be developed in a dark room. The images are instantly displayed onto a monitor. Within the computer are tools that allow us to take a closer look at the image than ever possible before. This makes it possible to catch changes that may have been overlooked by the naked eye. Being digitalized also means we can save the photo, email it, or print it however many times we would like. This is helpful for when a patient needs records, or needs to send the images to another doctor or an insurance company. This also makes it very easy for us to refer back to the images during your visits so we can quickly identify any changes.
