At Coquitlam Periodontal we offer cutting edge digital radiography in our diagnosis. In digital radiography, instead of the silver halide grain image these images are constructed using pixels or small light sensitive elements. Unlike film the sensors are only the radiation detector and the actual image is displayed on a monitor.
One of the greatest advantages of this process is the ability to select information of the greatest diagnostic value while suppressing the rest. There’s also a considerable savings in time. The image can be displayed chairside almost immediately post exposure.
The digital process is environmentally friendly and no processing chemicals are used or disposed of.
