The North Shore's Favourite Dentist

Dr. Boyd is pleased to offer the very latest in x-ray technology, utilizing digital radiography in her office.

Digital radiography is a type of Xray imaging, where digital Xray sensors are used rather than traditional photographic film.

Advantage of Digital Radiography

Benefits include saving time by bypassing chemical processing and the power to digitally transfer and enhance photographs. Also less radiation may be used to produce an image of similar contrast to standard radiography.
Rather than X-ray film, digital radiography uses a digital image capture machine. This allows for instant image preview; elimination of high-priced film processing ; a wider dynamic range, which makes it more forgiving for over- and under-exposure ; as well as the facility to apply special image processing techniques that enhance overall display of the image. Not many offices offer this technology, but we are proud to say that we do.
