Last week we had our semi-annual x-ray inspection by the state of Washington. The inspector evaluates the x-ray machines for how much exposure there is from each individual x-ray. Inspector also checks the software to be sure it is providing good images.
The inspector commented that our x-rays tested 50% or better than many of the other digital systems he examines. I have one of the earlier digital x-ray systems in Seattle. As a dental practice that believes in less is more, this practice goes toward radiation as well. I got it for several reasons:
1. First, and most important is reducing x-ray exposure to the patient.
2. It gives me an excellent image that I can look at and show the patients (if interested) where the areas of concern are and how to improve their oral health.
3. It is fast. With digital technology, x-ray images develop instantly. We no longer need to wait over 20-30 minutes for x-rays to develop.
4. Lastly, there is no need for toxic developing and fixing chemicals. So the office air is healthier to breathe and we do not need to dispose of these toxic chemicals in the environment.
Though x-rays are necessary, we will try our best to minimize the radiation that patients receive.
