More healthy for you: Digital x-rays require less exposure than the old style x-rays. Dr. Clark can move the mouse over the image and change the contrast and brightness of the x-ray. This can improve the quality of the available image, improving visualization of the problem and preventing retakes.
"Green" x-rays: Digital x-rays are environmentally friendly. The x-ray image goes directly to the computer. There are no developer nor fixer solutions(which contain silver) to recycle or dispose of in sewer systems or landfills. There are also no silver covered x-ray films to dispose of when they are not needed. Traditional dental x-ray films come in a packet with a small lead liner. Digital x-rays do not create a pile of lead sheets to recycle either.
Home Consultations: Dr. Clark can share your x-rays with you by email or over the internet. This might allow reviewing your x-rays with you or a spouse for better understanding of your needs.
Virtual Specialist Consultations: Dr. Clark can have rapid consultations with specialists,by email, to assure complete diagnosis of unusual conditions. You may save the time and expense of a referral visit to the specialist!
High Tech Digital X-rays since 1993!
Better Diagnosis: You can't fix what you can't see! Dr. Clark compares the old style x-rays (above) and a digital x-ray at maximum magni- fication(on computer monitor). It is much easier to see the details of your tooth's condition on a magnified digital x-ray.
Your problem is detected earlier! That means a smaller problem and less cost to you! Early detection also prevents pain and suffering which might result from a condition which went undetected.
