Digital X-rays

One example of the amazing evolving dental technology that is available to you at Dr. Strub’s dental office is digital X-rays. Digital x-rays expose you to up to 80-90% less radiation than traditional dental x-rays, making it safer for you and our dental team. Digital x-rays have also eliminated the need for any environmentally harmful chemicals that were previously needed to develop traditional dental x-rays. And best of all, the magnified digital x-ray image is visible within moments on a large, high quality computer monitor in each treatment room. This means no more squinting at a small film as you try to make out what is on the image. For the first time, you will be able to see what Dr. Strub is seeing as he explains his findings to you. Because of our high quality computer monitors and our advanced computer software, you will be able to detect decay (cavities), the health of your bone, impacted teeth, or any boney pathology like abscesses, tumors or cysts. If a dental specialist needs to be involved with your treatment, he can receive your high quality x-ray images within minutes instead of waiting to struggle with a poor quality duplicate x-ray image that he must wait for in the mail. These digital x-rays can also be submitted to your insurance company for faster service when processing your dental claim. The bottom line is that this amazing technology will help you become better informed about your oral condition and improve your ability to make informed decisions about your dental care.
