Digital X-Rays Are A Win-Win

It may not be hard to find a family dental practice that offers digital dental x-rays during dental checkups; as more and more dentists have adopted this latest dental technology for detecting cavities and other dental problems. As a patient, you may view digital x-rays as simply a safer form of x-rays for your family and one that emits a much lower does of radiation. This is certainly true, as it can actually reduce radiation exposure by up to 80% compared to traditional film x-rays. This makes your radiation exposure extremely minimal because conventional x-rays have already been revised to produce lower amounts of radiation for patient safety.

What you may not realize, however, is that beyond a safety advantage, digital dental x-rays can significantly improve your dental care. The benefit of digital x-rays for patient and dentist is mutual. Your dentist gains an easier method to x-ray patients, improved image accuracy as well as a streamlined form of storage and filing.

Unlike conventional x-ray methods, digital technology allows the use of color contrasting to produce a much clearer and precise image of your teeth. This often results in a much more accurate diagnosis. Dental problems can also be detected and treated much earlier. In addition, digital x-rays are instantly viewable to your dentist, making your dental care streamlined and convenient for both patient and dentist. Digital x-ray technology is not only mastered with limited training, it requires much less maintenance than conventional systems. A dental staff can spend more time with each patient, rather than stocking film supplies and processing chemicals.

When it comes to comprehensive family dental care, Grateful Dental offers digital x-rays as well as other state-of-the-art dental services to ensure patients get the safe, effective and streamlined care they deserve.

Had a great visit! Janice was a pleasure and Dr. Porcaro was very personable. They both made me feel at ease. The doctors husband (can’t remember his name) was able to find the best financing to fit our budget. I would definitely recommend Grateful Dental to my friends and family.


Very professional place ! Scheduling appointments can be done quickly and very easily online. Clean and updated office. All the staffs are very friendly. Never have to wait long for my appointment. My cleaning went well today and a big thank you to Terra. She is the best!
