Digital Imaging

Dr. Lewis and the Penobscot Bay Dentistry staff utilize invaluable digital imaging technologies to diagnose, treat, and maintain their patients’ dental health. Digital Radiographs enable us to better detect cavities, determine the level and health of bone, examine the roots and nerves of teeth, diagnose lesions and assess damage when trauma occurs.

Digital radiography is a form of x-ray imaging using digital sensors instead of traditional film. This technology allows immediate image review and enhanced image quality.

Exposure time is minimal, and digital x-rays result in one-sixth the radiation exposure to patients. Nonetheless, Dr. Lewis always carefully chooses when to use digital x-rays and which radiographs to take.

Finally, Penobscot Bay Dentistry’s use of digital imaging reduces costs and helps us to quickly save, retrieve and transfer valuable diagnostic information as part of a patient’s medical record.
