Shandon Family Dentistry has invested in the latest digital technologies to improve diagnosis and patient education. The traditional film radiographs (x-rays) take 5-10 minutes to develop and can be difficult to interpret. Also, digital radiographs expose the patient to less radiation than traditional film methods. Our digital images can be enlarged, adjusted for different contrast levels, and easily printed for efficient communication with specialists. When taking a radiograph at our office, our digital sensor transmits the information to our computer which then instantly displays the image on our patient monitor. This feature allows Dr. Desai to review all radiographs with you so that you can better understand any treatment that is proposed.
