Digital x-rays are increasingly becoming the preferred x-ray choice in the dental industry. Dr. Poupore has had this advanced technology in his office since 2005. This type of x-ray allows for a high level of detail, one which far eclipses traditional x-rays. The dentist will take an image of a single tooth or of a specific section of the mouth and then place it in a specialized imaging program. Using this program, the dentist can employ various high tech tools that provide the most accurate views possible. Digital x-rays are not only highly accurate, they are also better for the patient's health. This type of x-ray delivers almost 80 percent less radiation than the older form of x-rays do because digital x-rays were created especially with the patient's wellness in mind.
