X-Rays: Digital Dental Radiology at Our Clinic
When we do a dental exam at Millcreek Dental Care in Edmonton, we inspect your mouth inside and out to ensure your complete oral health. This includes an exam of your mouth and gums in addition to X-rays that allow us to view your roots and bone structure.
We follow the Alberta dental fee guide!
Advantages of Digital Dental Radiology
Radiology has been in use since the last 19th century, and many dentist offices still use film X-rays. Not only is this a slow process (as the film must be developed), it results in more radiation exposure for the patient. At Millcreek Dental Care, we use digital X-rays for our dental radiology. This has numerous advantages, including:
Images available immediately without film development
70% less radiation than film X-rays
Images can be stored and viewed on computer
Digital image enhancement techniques
When you visit us for the first time at Millcreek Dental Care, X-rays will be a part of your standard first exam. We also offer periodic X-rays for our regular patients who visit us for maintenance appointments. We’re currently accepting new patients, so contact us today.
