Dental X-Rays

Dental X-Rays in Winnipeg

Linden Market Dental Centre has invested in digital radiography to aid in the detection, diagnosis and treatment of dental issues. Digital radiography, also known as digital x-rays, has replaced traditional photographic x-ray film and produces enhanced computer images that help in all aspects of dentistry. Perhaps more important to patients, digital x-rays reduce the amount of radiation patients are exposed to as compared to their traditional counterparts, resulting in a safer solution then dental x-rays.

Benefits of Digital X-Rays

Digital x-rays mean that you no longer have to wait for us to develop your x-rays in a dark room as the x-rays are sent directly to a computer and can be viewed immediately. We find that this helps tremendously in helping us detect oral health issues early and accurately but also aids in patient education. Patients can literally see the dental problems that Dr. Rykiss identifies clearly on a computer screen and make more accurate decisions that affect their oral health.

Other benefits of digital dental x-rays include:

  1. Less radiation than the typical x-ray
  2. No wait time for the x-rays to develop; digital x-rays are instantaneous
  3. Potential to enhance images to focus in on specific areas of concern
  4. Easy to send images to other dentists or specialists should more advanced dental care be required
  5. Easy storage of dental records for future reference and comparison

We have invested in this advanced dental technology and are happy to offer this to all of our Winnipeg patients. It is generally advised that patients have x-rays taken at least once every 2 years (if not more often) to ensure good oral health. X-rays are commonly taken along with your dental examination and can be taken quickly and conveniently to make visits as efficient as possible.
