At Turlock Dental Care, we are pleased to utilize the latest dental technology to help you feel comforted and safe at our dental office.
Our dental team currently uses digital X-rays for both our benefit and yours. This machine is known to use less radiation than traditional X-rays and does not require the use of a dark room. When the images are taken, they are sent directly to our computers and are available immediately to be viewed by our dentist, Dr. Robert A. McCulla. This gives us the chance to closely zoom in on a crystal-clear picture and see any small dental issues. This also gives our dentist the ability to electronically send the images to another doctor if needed. This way, no time is lost and you can receive your needed treatment right away.
This machine also has an enhanced application that is called subtraction radiography. This application allows our dentist to see any differences between your new X-ray and your old X-ray. When the machine is used to compare two images, it takes any element out of the picture that is the same. Now our dentist can identify any changes your oral cavity has made over time, even if they are big or small.
If you would like to know more about digital X-rays in Turlock, California, we are happy to talk with you. Just give us a call today at 209-667-7889!
