Dr. Catalina Cruz Johnson uses digital imaging in Houston, Texas. Digital imaging allows us to take X-rays using up to 90% less radiation than conventional film X-rays. Using this technology, we are able to take an X-ray of your mouth by using a small sensor that records the image of your teeth and sends it to a computer. The result is a highly detailed image of your mouth that can easily be enhanced to better diagnose dental concerns and determine the very best treatment for each case. With traditional X-rays, film has to be developed in a dark room. Digital imaging sends the images to the computer screen in seconds.
Digital imaging allows our dentists to send images to another dentist or specialist electronically. This speeds up the process of transfering records. Using a process called subtraction radiography, our dentists can digitally compare current X-rays with previous ones. Everything that is the same in the two images is taken out, leaving an image only of the portions that are different. This process allows our dentists to spot even the smallest changes in your smile.
We invite you to contact Dentists at Memorial Park at 713-861-8323 today to learn more about the benefits of digital X-rays and to schedule your next visit.
