Digital means way less radiation. Period. We have a strict radiation protocol. No x rays before age 8. Minimal use to be sure there are no problems in a screening exam or before treatment. Of course we look at your Wisdom Teeth and we communicate with your dentist to avoid duplication of xrays. That is what we would do for our family member; and we treat you the same way. Most all of our xray are in 2D to reduce radiation exposure. We do have access to one of the best 3D xray machines on the market too. We can evaluate the most complex cases when needed. And, digital means no more chemicals down the sink. Going Green. It was the right thing to do.
