Dental X-Rays

Dental X-Rays

At John Street Dental we use modern digital radiography.  Digital x-rays use a sensor or phosphor plate, as opposed to the film used in traditional radio-graphic examinations, hence, minimised exposure to radiation for our patients. Radiography examinations are very important and benficial in the accurate diagnosis and managment of many dental conditions.  Xrays can assist with the early detection of things like oral cancers, tooth decay, cysts, impacted teeth, gum desease just to name a few.

Our X-ray equipment complies with the Australian Standards and guidelines.

The radiation received from digital X-Rays is so minor that it is less than the background radiation ( from the atmosphere, the Sun and the stars) you would receive in any given day.  It is also less than the radiation you would receive on a flight from here to Sydney. 

In recent years many advances in technology have been made to reduce the levels of radiation exposure from dental x-rays. 

Always feel free to discuss any queries or concerns you may have regarding our digital X-rays with your Dentist, here at John St Dental.
