digital x-rays

At Chamberlain Dental, diagnosing dental conditions is safe and easy thanks to cutting-edge dental technology. Digital radiography, also known as digital x-rays, takes dental conditions to the next level by giving us a clearer picture of what's happening below the surface.

What are Digital X-Rays?

Our use of digital x-ray technology reduces your radiation exposure and eliminates the use of chemicals. It’s better for you and the environment. It's also easy for you to see what the doctor sees. Your digital x-ray can be seen on a computer screen located next to your dental chair. This helps you understand your needs and make informed choices about your treatment.

​​A digital X-ray is composed of an electronic sensor and not a traditional X-ray film. The images can easily be stored on a computer. This reduces the amount of radiation the patient is exposed to by up to 90%. This form of X-Ray also has many other benefits: it is safer for the patient, and the pictures are in full color with a high resolution.

X-rays are a preventative and diagnostic tool for dentists. They enable us to see what's going on in the mouth between teeth and under the gum. We can use this information to detect dental abnormalities and create a treatment plan with accuracy.

Dentists use X-rays to see inside the mouth, diagnose dental issues, and find out if teeth are healthy or not. Among other things that dental X-rays reveal are abscesses, cysts, tumors, decay, developmental problems, bad tooth positions, and problems below your gum line.

Detect dental problems early! Early detection may save you time, money, and your teeth.

Digital X-rays are so much better than traditional x-rays for your health and safety. They are faster and more comfortable to take, which reduces your time in the dental office. They do not need to be developed, reducing the amount of harmful chemicals disposed of into the environment.

Even though digital X-rays are safe, we take necessary precautions to limit a patient’s exposure to radiation. These include not taking unnecessary X-rays and using lead shields to protect the patient.

Frequently Asked Questions

Yes! All of us are exposed to natural radiation. Studies show that traditional X-rays are about 1/100th the radiation of what the average person is exposed to in a year alone. Digital X-rays are even better - producing up to 90% less radiation than traditional ones.
There are several factors that determine the need for dental X-rays, including your age, medical history, signs of disease, and risk of disease. We recommend only medically necessary X-rays, based on a review of your medical and dental history.If you are a new patient, we may recommend that you get radiographs. These pictures help us see what is happening inside your mouth, and they also provide information about the future of your mouth. We may recommend that you get radiographs at more frequent intervals if you are at a high risk for certain diseases or have symptoms. Recent films may detect new cavities or can be used to evaluate gum disease and growth and development.

Your Story is our story!

“In my 20 years of being here never have I walked into a more comfortable dental office than this one. The whole team is amazingly friendly and compassionate. I don't remember ever going to a dentist and feeling this cared for and comfortable. They truly want to save your original teeth and are not just looking to bill high procedures when they're not necessary. They deserve 6 stars.”

Haris V.

“My entire family has been going to Chamberlain Dental for years. The staff is very friendly and always helpful. Lisa (who does our teeth cleaning) is super gentle and explains everything she is doing from start to finish. Her procedures are always quick and painless. Janice (front desk) went out of her way to show me the proper steps for my at-home teeth whitening after my first two attempts alone failed miserably. And this was on a Friday afternoon, right before closing time. These are just 2 examples of how the entire staff goes above and beyond to make every visit pleasant. I highly recommend Dr. Chamberlain and his staff for all of your General Dentistry needs.”

Heidi K.

Rebecca F.

“As usual, the professional staff @ Chamberlain Dental took great care of me, this time for a crown replacement. Their team knew exactly what they were doing and I couldn’t be happier with the result. Dr. Chamberlain is a total pro and he and his staff take the time to explain what they are doing and what to expect, while also being kind and courteous. My wife and I are very happy we were referred to this dental practice!”

Darwin S.

“They were great. Friendly staff, clean, helpful. I needed a crown asap and they have the equipment to make it right there in the office. I was in at 8am and out in a few hours with my tooth fixed with a permanent crown. Wow well done. Definitely recommend”
