Digital X-Rays at Trafalgar Village

Digital dental imaging produces excellent high-resolution images of your teeth, jaw bones, and surrounding soft tissues while significantly reducing the amount of patient exposure. Images appear instantly on screen eliminating the need for x-ray chemistry in the office environment. Waste is also significantly reduced supporting Oakville's and Burlingtonís green initiatives. Dental images are important in the diagnosis of conditions that may lead to the decline of your health.




Digital radiography has many advantages over traditional dental x-rays:
  • itís faster
  • thereís up to 90 percent less radiation.
  • we can enhance images in a variety of ways to improve viewing.
  • images can be stored electronically for instant retrieval in the future if needed.
  • we avoid the chemical used in the traditional developing process.
How digital radiography works

With digital radiography, we use a small sensor connected directly to a computer instead of a film packet. Taking x-rays is faster because the sensor is merely moved from tooth to tooth; we donít need to reload a film positioner for each image. Itís also faster because the x-rays are available immediately on the computer monitor with no development step in between. Because the digital x-ray exposure is shorter than taking conventional x-rays, the amount of x-ray radiation is reduced by up to 90 percent.

Digital x-rays allow us to see details and make adjustments that are a tremendous help in our diagnosis. We can also save images in our computer system for instant retrieval at a later date.

Our goal at Trafalgar Village Dental in Oakville is to prevent conditions from developing or, if already established, prevent them from advancing. We are pleased to share your images with you and the valuable diagnostic information they provide to enhance your understanding of treatment options.
