Digital X-rays are better for you
With digital x-rays, the film is replaced with a sensor. This sensor transmits the x-ray image to a computer where it can be altered if needed, viewed on a big screen, printed, or emailed. The biggest advantage is that less radiation is needed for digital x-rays. Also, it is much easier for you to see and understand your x-rays.

Cone Beam CT Scans are safer
In some cases, dental implants are best planned with a 3D X-ray called a CT scan. While medical CT scans are high radiation, a special dental cone beam CT exposes you to less radiation, while providing the best information for implant treatment. Dr. Mularczyk will order this type of scan when planning complex implant cases.
