Gone are the days of traditional film x-rays, and in their place are more accurate, more efficient digital x-rays. Not only do these mean less radiation exposure for our patients—you are likely to encounter more radiation on a two-hour airplane flight—but they are accurate and convenient.
X-rays are a crucial diagnostic tool when it comes to your preventive dental care program. With regular digital x-rays, Dr. Mahlin can monitor changes in your oral health. He can also spot problems while they are still so small, they are invisible to the naked eye. Digital x-rays are easily enlarged, so Dr. Mahlin can hone in on specific areas in question.
The convenience of digital x-rays means that we can quickly send them to insurance companies or specialists, meaning that needed treatment is less likely to be delayed.
