Digital Dental X-rays

Dr. Simpson has been using digital dental x-rays since 2006. Digital dental x-rays reduce radiation exposure to the patient by about 80% compared to conventional x-rays. Not only that but the clarity of the image is much greater and this allows Dr. Simpson to make a more accurate diagnosis. As well, there are no toxic chemicals (developer and fixer solutions) to dispose of with digital radiography which is good for our environment.

Even though radiation exposure is extremely low from digital dental x-rays, Dr. Simpson aims to limit the number of x-rays he takes on all his patients. There will be a thorough discussion of the reason for taking dental x-rays each time they are recommended. Dr. Simpson and his clinical staff will be happy to answer any questions you may have regarding this matter.
