It is important to know that Dr. Duke Kim is keeping up with the constant and rapid advancements in modern technology. Digital X-rays in Arlington, Virginia, are just one more advantage you will have at your disposal when you visit Ballston Dental Arts.
What Are Digital X-Rays?
Digital X-rays are one of the advanced diagnostic tools we use to provide you with the best possible care. Digital radiography has changed the way we take dental X-rays by making the process faster, more comfortable, and more convenient than ever before.
Instead of using a conventional film, we use a special computer sensor that uploads the X-ray image directly into the computer.
Why Choose Digital X-Rays?
Digital X-rays use significantly less radiation than conventional film X-rays, and they require the use of no chemicals for developing the images. Since the images are in the computer, we can enhance the images to better diagnose conditions – often before they become problems. This proves to provide more convenient and efficient treatment for each of our patients.
Dr. Duke Kim is able to instantly view the high-quality images on monitors right in the treatment room to provide you with efficient, accurate diagnoses and care. Our team is able to use digital radiography to identify and diagnose several types of dental problems, such as:
• Decay in between teeth
• Developmental abnormalities
• Improper tooth root positioning
• Cysts and abscesses
• Fractures in existing fillings
• Infection in the tooth nerves
• Bone loss
Digital X-rays are the method of choice when planning dental treatment, such as oral surgery procedures, root canal treatment, dental implants, and more.
