Advantages to Digital X-rays

An important advantage to digital radiography is that is uses 90% less radiation than film x-rays. Digital x-rays also produce a higher quality image that can be enlarged or magnified for a better visual of an area. With screens in front of every patient chair, patients are able to view their own x-rays and be able to better understand any areas of concern. If a hard copy is needed digital x-rays can simply be printed. At Foust Family Dental Care we want to provide are patients with the safest and highest quality of dental radiography possible.

Unfortunately, avoiding regular check ups and cleanings can lead to serious tooth decay, gum disease and other avoidable dental problems.

We give every patient personalized care. Besides having a compassionate dentist, we believe having a kind staff is just as necessary to easing patient’s anxiety.
