Dr. Slepchik’s office uses digital radiography to take the X rays you need. This technology allows the X ray to be immediately processed and available to view. The enlarged photos can be viewed directly in front of you on our TV screen, making decay easier to spot. We can also zoom in on them to enlarge them to your untrained eyes, making it easier to understand tooth structures and whatever treatment is needed. One of the greatest benefits to digital X rays is that it exposes you to 70% less exposure to radiation then conventional X rays (film).
The X rays will be stored in our computer, and can be easily transferred to a specialist through email in case you may need a referral. This makes communication clearer and easier between Dr. Slepchik and his fellow specialist to achieve the best treatment plan.
Overall, with digital X rays, you benefit in increased comfort when the photos are taken intra orally and less radiation. Dr. Slepchik believes strongly in cutting-edge technology in dental treatment and procedures to provide you with the best and most comfortable care possible.
