Innovative Biological Dentistry
Smile Design & Wellness Center is proud to be one of the first practices in Brevard County to have digital X-rays. Digital X-rays have many advantages over conventional X-rays. Most importantly they are significantly less in radiation, estimates are as high as 90% but probably more like 75% less than conventional.
We are pleased to add to our Digital X-ray technology a Vatech Cone Beam CT X-ray (CBCT). This is a 3 dimensional X-ray that is very low in radiation but high in diagnostic value. It is very useful in implant planning and surgery and in many other situations. Click on the link below to learn more about our Digital X- Rays.
Digital X-rays can be enhanced and magnified and are easily seen by the patient to help understand their diagnosis and conditions. The digital panoramic X-ray shows structures not seen with small X-rays, such as the sinuses, the jaw joints, impacted wisdom teeth and many other conditions. Digital X-rays are also very easy to transfer to specialists or other dentists. We tailor the need for X-rays to each condition and patient. Many of our healthy patients are having X-rays only every two years.
Who would not want less radiation?
