At Smile Team – NYC, we use digital radiographic system which means that x-rays are now taken in the blink of an eye (literally). This is an essential tool in helping our dentists detect pathologies like cavities, abscesses, and fractures in their initial phase. It allows them to better examine each area of the tooth, and it makes it possible to zoom in without losing resolution, for optimal evaluation and treatment. The digital X-rays use a lot less radiation (90% less to be exact) than the conventional ones.
