Digital Dental X-Rays....Why They Are Safer

Digital X-Rays Have Less Radiation!

In today’s world of microwaves and cell phones it is no wonder that people are concerned about over-exposure to radiation.  However, did you know that with the new developments in technology digital dental x-rays have 99% LESS radiation than traditional x-rays?  That’s less harmful than being out in the sun for fifteen minutes without sunscreen!

How is this possible?  With digital x-rays there is a process called “collimation” in which the beam of radiation is reduced.  On the machine there is a lead-lined column which directs the beam of radiation to the small area being x-rayed and greatly reduces the amount of radiation that strays from that path.  This process, combined with a lead apron, reduces the amount of radiation to a patient so greatly that even pregnant women are safe to receive check-up x-rays!

Aside from the reduction in radiation, digital x-rays also have the benefit of producing an instantaneous image resulting in less waste to the environment by eliminating processors, developers and the need for film.  Also, as an added bonus, digital x-rays have a smaller and less sharp appliance for patient’s to bite down on fighting the impulse to gag.

So next time you’re in for your cleaning and check-up, don’t fear the radiation from your dental x-rays, fear your microwave oven!

Candy Buy Back Program

Dear Parents:

Halloween is coming, and normally it's hard for your dentist to get excited about that day because of all the candy your kids will consume.  However, this year will be different.  Don't you just wish that on the day after Halloween your kids' sacks full of candy would just disappear?  Well, we can help!  This year we'll buy the candy from them!  We're not kidding!  The candy your child donates to our office will be shipped overseas to the brave men and women serving this country.  In return, we will give your kids $1.00 per pound of donated candy, as well as, a flashing toothbrush and a free kids meal coupon to Leone's Restaurant located at 320 Cooley Street, Springfield, MA.

We will also have a special area set up in the office where your child can write a thank you note to one of our nations greatest and bravest.

So bring in your kids (in costume!) and candy on Tuesday, November 2nd between 4:30 and 6:30PM to our office located at 2194 Wilbraham Road, Springfield, MA 01129 and help put a smile on a soldier’s face.

If you need any additional information, please call us at 413-783-6907.
