Ensure your teeth are healthy for a lifetime when you visit the experienced dental professional at Gerard H Menzies DMD PC in North Bellmore, New York, for digital x-rays.
While traditional X-ray machines are an effective tool for detecting dental problems, state-of-the-art digital dental x-rays are safer tools offering the same benefits. When compared to conventional machines, they give off 1/2 less radiation. In addition to being a safer method to keeping a healthy smile, digital dental x-rays eliminate the wait time. The monitor assesses the images immediately, so you and your dentist no longer have to wait for the developed images. With the instantaneous images, we can print out or email the results to a specialist or surgeon for further care.
Part of maintaining a healthy smile is patient education. At our office, Dr. Menzies uses the digital dental x-rays as a teaching method to educate you on the condition of your teeth. The monitor gives Dr. Menzies the opportunity to zoom in on potentially problematic areas, which gives you an idea of the dental services you may need. Additionally, digital dental x-rays show you images of your bone and the level of periodontal disease, if present.
