Dr. Smoot exclusively uses Dexis Digital Radiography to take x-rays. Digital radiography is a form of x-ray where a censor is used in place of traditional film. Digital radiography is better suited for diagnosing dental conditions. By using digital radiography we are able to reduce the patient’s exposure to radiation by 70-80%! Digital radiographs are able to be viewed immediately on any computer in our office helping us to make your appointment as quick and efficient as possible. Another benefit to this technology is the ability to manipulate the picture. Digital radiography software allows us to lighten/darken as well as enhance the x ray to help us better diagnose.
