Dental Radiography at Warrendale Dental Care employs the latest digital technology. The result is instant radiographic diagnosis at a considerable lower exposure to X-rays. This follows national guidelines to reduce exposure to a level that is ‘as low as reasonably applicable.’
Computer software enables the dentist to manipulate the image in various ways and to extract significantly more information from a single image than would be possible using traditional techniques.
All equipment is regularly inspected and tested to ensure accurate dosing and safety. Staff wear personal dosimeters to ensure that they are not exposed to more radiation than is appropriate.
We are able to take intra-oral radiographs (small x-rays taken in the mouth) as well as computer tomography (a large ‘slice’ x-ray taken from outside the mouth).
