More and more dental practices around the country are making the switch to digital dental x-rays from conventional film x-rays. Despite the fact that digital dental x-ray machines cost approximately 3 to 5 times more than conventional film dental x-ray units, dentists and dental professionals love the many advantages of digital dental x-rays.

A primary advantage of digital dental x-rays that benefits both the patient and the dental professional is an 80 percent reduction in exposure to radiation. It is important to note that advances in both digital and film x-rays severely limit the amount of radiation exposure, so this benefit seems much greater than it actually is. The ease of digital dental x-rays is the real draw for many dental practices.

There is no need for dentists to stock a supply of x-ray film or processing chemicals with digital dental x-rays. Digital dental x-rays are easy to use, especially if the dental staff already knows how to take conventional x-rays. Digital dental x-rays produce virtually instantaneous images that are easily stored in the patients personal computer file. Digital x-ray files are easy to read, simple to share with other dentists or other practices, and effortless to store. Dentists are able to use color contrast in the digital x-ray images which sets them apart from their film counterpart.

Whether your dentist uses digital dental x-rays or traditional film x-rays, there is no downplaying the importance of dental x-rays in the diagnosis of dental problems and the ability to develop proper dental treatment plans. Dental x-rays combined with thorough dental exams by a qualified dentist are vitally important in your dental health.

This dental practice is a gem! The front desk staff are kind, efficient and welcoming. I was pleasantly surprised at the clinical staff’s fantastic bedside manner. Everything was explained in advance and this was very appreciated. My teeth have never felt better! Love, love, love the hygienist that worked with me. She is a rockstar. Thank you to the whole gang!

I've been going to Crabapple dental for many years and I can honestly say Dr. Roberts and her team are by far the best. It's hard to find a good dentist that takes the time to get to know you and truly cares about your health. I knew Dr. Roberts was special when she filled a few cavities for me, then called me later that night to make sure I was ok. I feel at home when I'm there and they always treat me so well. Kelly is so wonderful! She takes her time and makes going to the dentist an easy task. I never stress about going because I know she'll take care of me. She is so pleasant and efficient; truly the best experience and I leave feeling great. Both Kelly and Dr. Roberts are so gentle and that is the most important thing to me. Dr. Roberts has the most updated equipment and beautiful office to give the best experience. I travel from downtown to see them because they are the best! Don't hesitate to make an appointment; you won't be disappointed!!

This is by far the most customer focused dental practice I’ve ever experienced. Starting with Dr Roberts and her entire staff! Immediately I felt I was a priority and my anxiety slowly disappeared. She has state of the art technology and is a pleasure to work with!! She contacted me after hours to check on me after certain procedures!! Highly recommend!!!! A very warm and nurturing environment!!
