Digital Radiography (X-Rays)
Our Naples office proudly offers digital x-rays for patients who wish to reduce their exposure to radiation from traditional film x-rays. This innovation will substantially reduce your exposure to radiation from X-rays, making your visit to our Naples dental office faster and easier.
Digital x-rays are quickly becoming adopted by a large percentage of the dental industry — allowing your Naples dentist to take an image of the tooth or teeth and easily put it into an imaging program. Within this imaging program, there are a number of tools that will allow Dr. Rashid look very closely at your teeth and surrounding structures with amazing accuracy.
A few of the advantages of Digital X-Rays:
- SAFER - Reduces radiation up to 90% over traditional film x-rays
- HEALTHIER – Eliminates the need to use caustic chemicals in the office
- FASTER – Produces enlargedimages that can be viewed immediately
- BETTER – Provides more diagnostic information to identify problems
- EASIER – Stores images on the computer for easy retrieval for insurance
Your Naples dentist will begin the digital x-ray process by inserting small film into your mouth, similar to traditional dental x-rays. An image will appear immediately on a nearby computer screen. You and your dentist look at the images on a large LCD monitor, in real time, and make decisions about your dental health. Images are then stored on our computer for easy retrieval.
The intraoral camera is an amazing diagnostic tool for viewing different angles in the mouth that we would not have been able to just a few years ago. The camera gives your Naples area dentist the ability to view the entire mouth on a monitor so that we can get a closer look at any potential issues or problems that may arise. In addition, the patient will have the ability to see first hand the same images we are seeing. These digital images are also excellent for gaining procedure acceptance from insurance companies.
