How JOEL B. SHIELDS, DDS, PC Reduces Radiation Exposure From Patient X-rays
Film x-rays have been used in dentistry for decades. In the past few years many forward thinking dentists like Dr. Shields have invested in digital x-ray technology. Film x-rays cost a bit less than digital x-rays but the long term exposure to film x-rays can be very harmful to a patient’s overall health. Our digital x-ray uses as much as 85% less radiation than traditional x-ray technology.
