Digital Radiographs & Photos
The staff at Maple Ridge Dental utilize digital radiography and photography to provide thorough patient education, and superior clinical treatment. Patients can view dental x-rays and photos on a computer monitor, and patients can see and discuss diagnoses like never before. Our Dentists believe that the cornerstone of excellent oral health is complete patient education. Digital imaging helps our patients to see that repairs are needed. We are now able to detect old fillings that are breaking down, before they become a bigger problem. In addition, digital x-rays require less exposure to radiation to create the image. The images can be enhanced with magnification, contrast and color, giving the dentist superior information. The x-rays and photos can be easily printed from the computer, so that patients can take a copy home, or copies can be sent to other dentists, specialists, and lab technicians. Dental photography is often times used by our lab technicians to gain accurate shade matching, and personal characterization of porcelain restorations. Images can even be e-mailed, if needed.
Our commitment to excellence is reflected in our use of the latest in diagnostic and educational imaging, so that we can continue to provide the very best dentistry to our patients.
