Safe, accurate & fast.

We use dental x-rays to assess your oral health and to diagnose a wide range of conditions. With the use of x-rays we can see tooth decay, loss/change in your bone density, periodontal disease, and tooth infections. Our dental x-rays have the industry’s highest theoretical resolution, allowing us to make the best and most accurate diagnosis possible. In general, digital x-rays expose you to 70% less radiation as compared to traditional film x-rays and 40 times less radiation than a person would be exposed to in a typical day. We are also able to see your images much faster as they instantly appear on our computer screen in the operatory. Each of our operators at the Hamilton dental practice is equipped with Schick 33 digital X-rays.
