There are many advantages to using digital x-rays. Besides requiring less radiation, they are often much faster and more efficient than film x-rays because there is no film to be processed. If you are a patient at Joseph R. Nemeth DDS & Associates, you may have notices that we have been using digital x-rays for quite some time now. We also utilize digital periodontal charting in the office. Digital x-ray images are often clearer than those on film and are available almost immediately on the monitor in the treatment room where you can see them as the doctors or staff at Dr. Nemeth's office in Metro Detroit discuss your treatment needs. With digital x-rays and charting, both are stored on our computer system and are also instantly available to share with your primary care dentist if desired or requested. Also available at Joseph R. Nemeth DDS & Associates is the i-Cat 3-D CT scan. The scan provides the doctors with high resolution, volumetric images of the patient's bone and tooth structure. It allows our periodontal doctors an improved ability to accurately predict surgical outcomes. Digital x-rays and i-Cat technology can dramatically advance patient care. For questions about digital x-rays or the i-Cat CT scanner, please contact the Joseph R.
