Digital radiography and Electronic Medical Record
At Smileoracles we use newer X-ray techniques known as Digital imaging. Instead of developing X-ray film in a dark room, the X-rays are sent directly to a computer and can be viewed on a screen, stored, or printed out. The technique uses less radiation than the conventional X-ray and there is no waiting for the X-rays to develop. The X-ray image is available on a screen a few seconds after being taken.
With Digital X-ray we have the advantage of enhancing and enlarging the image on the computer screen, making it easier to detect problems and help in accurate diagnosis. We also use software to maintain your confidential medical records safely and securely. You can have access to your medical and dental records or share it with other doctors electronically. We can also send your Diagnostic and Treatment X-rays electronically to you or another Dentist or Specialist for a second opinion.
