Digital radiography provides many advantages to traditional x- ray film techniques. Chicago (I- Newswire) June 17, 2012 - According to Dr. Elseweifi of Bucktown Dental Associates , dental radiographs, or X- rays, are important parts of a thorough dental examination. Some people worry about their exposure to radiation during dental X- ray procedures. This is very understandable in light of the relatively high radiation of some medical X- rays. In spite of the low radiation dosages of dental x- rays dentists are always concerned about minimizing the amount of radiation a patient receives. That's why they cover patients with lead aprons during X- ray procedures. Digital radiography is a form of dental technology where digital X- ray sensors or phosphorus plates are used instead of traditional photographic films. This offers the advantage of an 80% reduction in radiation. The technique gives immediate image preview and availability and eliminates the costly film processing steps. In addition, the technique is more forgiving for over- and under- exposure. Finally, it allows the use of special image processing techniques that enhance overall display of the image. The same dental digital imaging module can combine other imaging techniques such as panoramic and cephalometirc radiography and intra- oral video camera imaging. Panoramic radiography produces a single picture of all the teeth and surrounding bones. It shows the entire upper and lower jawbones, jaw joints, nasal sinuses, and the mandibular never. It is a very valuable diagnostic technique. Cephalometric radiography is useful for orthodontic treatment and growth monitoring. The intra- oral video camera takes pictures of the inside of the mouth. The images are enlarged on a monitor so that the patient and dentist are able to view together every detail of oral health. Dr. Elseweifi says he is proud to provide this advanced technology to the Wicker Park and Bucktown neighborhoods of Chicago. Newer dental imaging techniques are safer and provide better diagnostic qualities. They also help patients make informed decisions about treatment options and help dentists provide better quality dental treatment
