Digital Dental X-rays

Digital x-rays are the standard in modern dentistry. Using this sophisticated technology, Dr. Lakatos is able to get a clear picture of the teeth, bones, and joints. Digital x-rays are fast and comfortable and deliver 90% less radiation than traditional x-rays.

Dental x-rays are very important in diagnosing a patient’s dental condition. Without this snapshot of the interior workings of the oral system, the dentist is forced to simply guess at what might be causing the problems. Dental x-rays are also extremely useful in looking for hidden problems such as oral cancer, gum disease and TMJ disorders.

Digital dental x-rays produce high quality images instantly that can be viewed on a computer screen, allowing for a greater level of communication between the dentist and patient.
