Convenient Orthodontic Treatment in Arvada & Lakewood, CO
You deserve a smile you're proud of, and at All About Braces, our mission is to help you achieve one in a way that works for your lifestyle. As a leading orthodontist serving the Aurora, Thornton, and the greater Denver, CO area, we're proud to offer a wide range of orthodontic treatments, and we take every step to ensure that the orthodontic treatment process is as safe, easy, and convenient as possible. As a part of that commitment, we're proud to use iTero digital x-rays in our office: a low-radiation alternative to traditional dental x-rays.
The Benefits of Digital X-Rays
X-rays are one of our most helpful tools in diagnosing orthodontic conditions, because they allow us to see what's happening underneath the level of the gumline, exposing impacted teeth, problems in the tooth roots, and giving us a clearer picture of tooth alignment. In the past, orthodontists would take analog x-rays using x-ray paper. Now, however, there's a better option.
Our office is proud to offer digital x-rays to all of our patients, providing a safer, more convenient alternative to traditional x-rays. Digital x-rays still use x-rays to scan the teeth, but the x-rays go to a digitized receiver that creates the images on a computer. This comes with a number of benefits, including:
- Less Radiation:
Digital x-rays require significantly less radiation to create, meaning they minimize radiation exposure and keep patients safer than analog x-rays.
- Enhanced Imaging:
Digital x-rays use advanced software to produce clearer, more detailed images of the teeth, making it easier for your Denver orthodontist to diagnose orthodontic conditions in detail.
- Editing Abilities:
With digital x-rays, we're able to mark the image on the computer, giving your Arvada orthodontist yet another tool for diagnosing your condition and planning treatment.
- Easier Storage & Faster Access:
Because we can store digital x-rays in your patient file on our computer, it's much easier to keep them safe over time and pull them up when we need them.
