Digital X-Rays: Less Radiation, Faster Results
With so many more people today conscious of the things that go into their bodies, including the team at Taylor Street Dental, it’s no wonder that radiation has become an issue for many to think about when they visit their doctor or dentist. It’s a natural reaction when faced with something we know to be harmful to us in long-term ways, ways we don’t really understand unless we’re medical doctors. To eliminate this worry for our patients, or to reduce it to such a degree as to be a nuisance rather than a concern, we’ve switched to 100% digital X-rays and no longer use traditional X-rays of any kind!
So, what pushed us to make this decision? Well, for starters, it was a real concern about the amount of radiation being used in traditional X-rays – especially with small children. But there are other benefits as well to using digital X-rays over the more traditional type. Thee include all of the following:
- About 90% less radiation required.
- Near instantaneous viewing of scan.
- Much higher quality image produced.
- Electronically share scan immediately.
- No involved preparation time needed.
- No environmentally harmful chemicals.
After you see all of the benefits involved with switching from traditional X-rays to digital, it’s no surprise that Taylor Street Dental has made the change. Honestly, every dental clinic should because there’s just nothing to recommend using the old method over the new; maybe stubbornness or a clinic unwilling to pay the costs needed to upgrade to digital. Taylor Street Dental made that commitment long ago for overall improvements to patient care they provide us.
You could say that digital X-rays are just another way we’re proving ourselves to be the #1 dental clinic in Pilsen and the Near West Side. Call (312) 226-1537 or use our contact form to make an appointment for digital X-rays today!
