NEW TECHNOLOGY > Digital Dental X-rays

Planmeca X-ray   Dental X-rays are used to detect disease under restorations, between teeth and in the Jaw bone.

We do not take x-rays unnecessarily. Before deciding to take x-rays, we usually assess the value of the information that the x-ray will yield.

Dental Clinique has made a significant investment to incorporate Digital X-rays for both small x-rays and the whole mouth scan.

What are digital x-rays?
Digital X-rays are the latest technology to be encompassed into Dentistry and Medicine.

How does it work?
The X-Ray film is replaced with a sensor (either a plate or a “video” sensor) . These are linked to either a laser scanner or directly to the computer. In both cases the image is processed by the computer and displayed on the screen.

How does it benefit me?
The amount of x-ray dosage is significantly lower than traditional x-rays. Dosage reduction of up to 40 - 60% are achievable. As processing errors are reduced, repeat x-rays less likely and the quality of the x-rays are more consistent. Reduction in processing time means that we can often discuss our findings with you at your first visit.

What about children?

Because of the huge reduction in X-ray dose, we are quite happy to take x-rays for children, only when necessary.

Planmeca X-ray   How does it benefit the Dentist?
This clean technology makes it easier for the practice to store and retrieve the x-rays. It will also be possible to send images to other professionals over the internet should this be necessary.
