Dexis Digital X-Rays
X-rays have been a key diagnostic tool in dentistry for decades. They let us see cavities and damage to your teeth that would be difficult, if not impossible, to spot with a visual inspection alone. Now, thanks to the Dexis Digital X-ray system, X-rays at Jay Hodge DDS, are faster, safer, and more effective than ever before!
Unlike the old fashioned film based X-rays, the Dexis Digital X-ray system allows us to take advantage of the benefits of digital photography! These benefits include being able to look at the picture on a computer screen in a matter of seconds, and manipulate and enlarge that picture for a better view of the inside of your mouth. This results in a faster and more accurate diagnosis. Plus, since the X-ray pictures will be easy to see on the computer screen, you'll know more about the condition of your teeth and be able to make a more informed decision about the dental work you need!
Dexis Digital X-ray technology also speeds up the billing process. That's because we can send the digital X-ray images to your insurance provider electronically for faster approval. And faster approval means that we can get started on your dental work sooner!
The Dexis Digital X-ray system at Jay Hodge DDS, has advantages that go beyond speed and ease of diagnosis. They're also better for you and the environment! Old fashioned film X-rays would require exposing you to twice the radiation of digital X-rays! Why be exposed to more radiation than necessary? Also, the fact that the Dexis Digital X-ray system dispenses with the need for toxic photo development chemicals makes it better for the rest of the environment!
With the help of X-rays, we can deliver faster and safer diagnoses than ever before!
