Radiographic Information

How do we reduce our patient's radiation exposure?


Dental X-ray Tucson - DEXIS DEXShield DIGITAL X-RAY equipment reduces the exposure to radiation by 80-90% compared to conventional dental x-ray systems. We use Dexis digital radiographic system in our office, which offers reduced exposure to radiation.www.dexis.com

DEX-Shield is a unique protective shield that provides an additional 30% less radiation exposure during dental x-rays. When used during the dental x-ray, it aligns the x-ray beam with the tooth and provides an attenuating barrier to protect the patient from unnecessary radiation exposure.

Dental X-ray Tucson - DEX Shield DEXIS CariVu is a caries detection device that uses transillumination technology to make the enamel appear transparent while porous carious lesions trap and absorb light. This is used to support the identification of carious lesions and tooth fractures. This involves no radiation to the patient.www.dexis.com/carivu

X-rays are an important aspect of accurate diagnoses and should be performed on a routine basis. We rely on radiographic information for revealing:
  • Decay that cannot be seen with the naked eye
  • Tumors, cysts, and dental abscesses
  • Impacted or extra teeth
  • Areas of tartar buidup or bone loss, which is crucial to successful dental implant treatment
  • Foreign bodies in bone or gum tissue
  • X-rays also enable us to determine the condition of restorations and root canals

Rating:5 5 Star Rating Review, Dental X-ray Tucson

Dental X-ray Tucson - Left QuoteI have received very good care by Dr. Krizman and her office for the many needs I have had in the last 6 months. I honestly do not know what I would have done had I not found her. I appreciate her biological/integrative approach to dentistry, her technical expertise, her kindness and that of her staff. She has gone out of her way to explain things thoroughly and given me clear options and additional help when I needed it. She is very detailed and careful in her work. I highly recommend her.Dental X-ray Tucson - Right Quote
