Why are digital X-rays important?

At Blissful Dental, we are committed to offering you the most thorough, and comfortable dental care possible. For this reason, we recommend that you visit our office twice a year—once every six months for a dental exam and cleaning. To help us provide you with the most accurate care possible, we are proud to utilize digital X-rays.

What are the benefits of digital X-rays?

Compared to standard dental X-rays, digital X-rays reduce a patient’s exposure to radiation substantially. Digital X-rays do not require a dark room to develop film. Instead, these images are developed almost instantly and are sent directly to a computer. From that computer, Dr. Howard can easily store your results, send those results quickly to another dentist or specialist, or enhance the image allowing for a more accurate diagnosis.

We are devoted to offering you and your family the most advanced dental care possible, and are determined to preserve your oral health. While we do recommend that you visit our office every six months for cleanings and dental X-rays in Lanham, Maryland, we may recommend more frequent visits depending on your individual needs. If you would like more information about digital x-rays, or any of the services we offer at Blissful Dental, please feel free to contact us immediately.
