Lohmann Dental Uses Digital X-rays
Lohmann Dental utilizes the latest in digital X-ray technology. A key benefit of this technology is that it delivers an 80% reduction in radiation over traditional dental X rays. This impressive reduction provides a greater margin of safety for you, the patient.
The radiation levels from tradition dental X-rays were already much lower than those received from medical X-rays, such as from a chest exam. With the new technology of digital dental X-rays, we lower the levels of radiation exposure from X-rays, even lower.
Used sensible and according to the accepted guidelines dental X-rays are safe and a valuable tool for dental health.
The advantages of digital X-rays are:
• Significantly lower radiation levels
• Fast, almost instantaneous images.
• The patient can see the image and gain better understanding of the teeth and any problems
• Insurance claims can be backed up with images
• There is no film or processing
• The image has more clarity and there is added color contrast.
The “Digi-Doc Camera Wand” for Instant Viewing
One of the best benefits of digital X-ray technology is the capability to rapidly view the image with Dr. Lohmann, who can explain your situation and recommended treatments. As the saying goes, “a picture is worth a thousand words” and this hand-held digital cameral want allows our staff to go into your mouth and display, on-screen, exactly what is going on with your teeth. As you can imagine, this makes a huge difference in understanding problems and why treatment that Dr. Lohmann may recommend is necessary.
These modern tools have significantly advanced the ability to accurately diagnose and treat dental problems. Together, with a visual examination, they help Dr. Lohmann to paint a complete picture and to make a full professional judgement and recommendation of treatment. Additionally, they provide you, the patient, a level of comprehension that was difficult to achieve with older technologies. And that’s important to us too.
