DEXIS (Dental Electronic X-ray Imaging System)
Redmond Dentist Dr. Sayyah uses advanced technology for your health and wellness. Digital X-Rays are a healthier alternative to traditional dentistry. How do they work? Digital Dental X-Rays work when we place a small sensor into your mouth. The sensor is connected to a computer by a thin wire. Next, an X-ray beam is sent through your teeth and into the sensor, which records the image of your teeth and sends it to the computer. The sensor can then be re-positioned to photograph other sections of your teeth and mouth.

Why Digital Dental X-Rays are Better
Digital radiography can take x-rays of your teeth utilizing a computer. Not only do digital x-rays expose our clients and team to 90% less radiation than normal film-type x-rays, they’re also considerably more sensitive when compared with classic dental x-rays. Digital x-rays allow us to easily look at the whole tooth and root structure along with adjoining bone and tissue. They offer us an opportunity to locate and diagnose concerns before they can be apparent to the naked eye, and before they are able to bring about considerable harm and discomfort to you and your tooth.
To get an x-ray, a tiny sensor pad which is hooked up by a line to a computer system, is put inside the mouth. A beam of energy will then be sent through your teeth towards the sensor which saves the images. The doctors and staff members may instantly access the digital x-rays on a monitor to examine the final results. Forget about waiting around for x-rays to develop. The doctor can also show you the images so that you can see everything we are describing with regard to your health of your teeth and gums.
Dentists have depended on photographic film x-rays since the 19th century. They brought along numerous complications but there was a shortage of other options. Do you recall that large piece of cardboard that supported the film and how it caused you to feel nauseated? In addition, the sides made your gums sore and it was sharp and uncomfortable. Do you recall how the dental assistant would take the x-ray and would keep you waiting for what seemed like forever, as they developed them in toxic chemicals that were harmful and polluting to the environment. At times, when the x-rays were finally developed the picture quality could sometimes be poor or at an incorrect angle thus causing uncomfortable retakes. Fortunately, today with modern technology the x-rays have less radiation, no harmful and toxic developing chemicals, clearer images, with an ease of imaging for your comfort and best of all, you as a patient are able to see them easily and they serve as an excellent educational source for all patients.
