At EMA Dental, we utilize digital radiography and follow timing guidelines designed to lessen your radiation exposure while still producing accurate images of your mouth and providing our professionals with the data they need to treat you effectively and efficiently. Radiographs are an essential aspect of the diagnostic process because they help us see what’s not obvious to the naked eye, such as the condition of bones, the presence of hidden decay and the roots of your teeth. Lesions and nerves are also visible on radiographs.
Dental radiographs are a necessary step to ensure each patient enjoys good dental health into the future. To make the best use of your time in our office, we use efficient digital imaging technology. It’s faster and more convenient than outdated 35mm film imaging. Your radiation exposure is approximately 50 percent less with digital imaging.
