Digital X-ray services, advanced diagnostics in Milton, ON, support proactive care for healthy teeth
Digital x-ray services at the Milton, ON office of Scott and Derry Dental Care perfectly complement our team’s high level of skill and training in the latest and safest dental technologies and techniques. There is only so much that dentists like Dr. Jameela Jifri and Associates can see upon visual inspection; sophisticated x-rays and diagnostic imaging detects what isn’t visible with our eyes alone. Our advanced diagnostic technologies also feature many other benefits that you don’t get with earlier-generation systems.
Tools such as digital x-rays use specialized sensors and plates instead of the film associated with traditional radiography. This modern system renders precise images and can be enlarged to see minute areas or areas that may hide decay. That is an essential characteristic because so many times, early-stage dental disease is asymptomatic. Patients depend on professionals and their tools to identify what they can’t feel or sense. They may assume their mouths are healthy because their teeth and gums feel fine and aren’t causing problems such as bleeding.
We also use intraoral cameras that capture quality images of oral tissues at various angles. These images can be manipulated to see better what is going on inside the mouth in those hard-to-reach areas.
Digital imaging and the use of intraoral cameras require just moments to capture, produce, and evaluate images. It means less time chairside for you and adds to your comfort and experience at our office. Additionally, these digital tools are appropriate for patients with a bad gag reflex. How we take these images is non-invasive and doesn’t involve the use of gag-inducing and obtrusive bitewings.
We appreciate that many patients scrutinize the materials and processes that dentists have conventionally used as “staples” for diagnostics and treatment. You and your family’s safety are our team’s foremost priority. For this reason, we have only invested in those clinically proven and safe technologies. Digital x-rays are associated with a fraction of the radiation exposure of traditional “film-based” x-rays. It’s estimated that, depending on the type of films that are used, practices can reduce radiation exposure by up to 90% — just by switching to digital radiography. Plus, our planet will thank us for supporting minimal medical waste. Films and associated waste can add up.

We also enjoy being able to show patients small areas of decay or the effect of receding gums, rather than just saying, “You have a cavity that needs to be filled,” or “we need to do this to get your gums healthy.” Clear images can quickly be brought up on a monitor and adjusted to educate our patients on what is going on with their mouths, which builds upon our relationship and the likelihood that they will stick to things like periodontal maintenance or adjustments to oral hygiene.
