Digital Radiography in Spring Valley
X-rays have proven an invaluable tool for professionals in the medical and dental fields since the late 1800s, allowing healthcare providers to evaluate what could not otherwise be seen with the eye alone. Today, Dr. Michael G. Hollingshead relies upon an advanced version of the time-tested x-ray: digital radiography. With a genuinely caring touch and an enduring passion for exceptional customer service, Dr. Hollingshead and his team are happy to provide comprehensive dental care to families in Las Vegas, NV and the surrounding areas. One of the ways that we accomplish this involves the use of digital x-rays.
Benefits of Digital X-Rays
The American Dental Association recommends the use of digital x-rays for a variety of reasons, and our office is happy to pass the benefits of this advanced technology on to our patients every day. The advantages afforded by digital dental x-rays include:
- When a digital x-ray image is captured, it can be immediately sent to a computer or chairside monitor for prompt, easy viewing by both doctor and patient. Traditional x-ray film must be developed before the images can be viewed, resulting in longer patient waiting time.
- Because digital x-rays require no film and zero darkroom chemicals, they are substantially more environmentally friendly.
- Digital copies of your x-rays can be easily and quickly stored, accessed, and shared on a computer. This means you won’t have to wait days or even weeks for your x-rays to be retrieved and shared with insurance companies or other dental and medical professionals should the need to do so arise. This may even expedite your dental benefits claims.
- Images captured with digital x-ray equipment can be easily enlarged, rotated, and otherwise manipulated for clearer viewing.
- Digital x-rays expose patients to only a fraction of radiation as compared to traditional x-ray machines.
Your health, safety, convenience, and satisfaction are our top priorities. We can’t wait to show you how digital x-rays can improve your dental office experience at every visit.
