At the dental practice of Dr. Alan J. White, D.D.S., we proudly utilize enhanced technology to benefit you and your family members.
Our team currently uses a digital x-ray machine in Staunton, Virginia, which is a device that is known to use less radiation than typical x-ray machines. This is a great characteristic that keeps you safe and comfortable at our office. The digital x-ray also has the ability to send the images directly to the dentist’s computer, which makes everything more convenient and productive. With this characteristic, your dentist is able to zoom in closely on a detailed and clear picture. This gives your dentist the ability to identify small or large issues in your mouth. With the images being sent directly to the computer, your dentist is also able to send the x-rays to any other doctor if it is needed.
One of the most popular enhanced application the machine has is called subtraction radiography. This application has that ability to compare your new x-ray to your old x-ray. When the device is commanded to compare the pictures, every aspect of both pictures that are the exact same are deleted. Then, your dentist will be able to see any changes, big or small, that has occurred in your mouth over time.
