Here at Durham Dental Anesthesia we use the newest technology on the market. Digital x-ray's provide a faster, safer way to examine your teeth. It allows us to make a more accurate diagnosis and speed up your treatment.
Digital x-ray technology offers many advantages over the traditional way of taking x-rays.
- they are faster than traditional x-rays

- images can be enhanced
- images are stored digitally for easy retrieval and comparision
- can be e-mailed from doctor to doctor
The Scan X system that is used in the office seems no different to the patients when we take your x-rays. Instead of using a traditional fim that needs to be processed with chemicals, we use a phosporus plate that is scanned into the computer system and is downloaded into your patient file forever.
