Digital X-Ray Technology

Why are X-Rays Necessary?

X-rays enable Dr. Paschen to give the best diagnosis possible, and to check progress during orthodontic treatment. Paschen Orthodontics has invested in the latest technology and all images taken are digital. This mean there will be minimal radiation exposure to our patients, and the images will be more accurate. In rare cases (only 2 percent), dental roots can shorten due to the pressure applied by braces, and the only way to make sure this isn’t happening is with x-rays. More commonly, a crowding problem might come up and treatment will need to be adjusted. Traditional x-rays expose patients to radiation, which is why you always wear a lead apron when the images are being taken. Thanks to advances in technology, there is now a safer way to take these images.
