Radiographs or X-rays are essential to any Durango dentist that strives to provide the best care available. Here at Durango Dental, our radiographs give us an insider view to potential problems hidden under the gums or in between teeth. This allows Dr. Belt to identify and treat small cavities before they have a chance to grow larger and more expensive. We recognize the concerns you have about radiation exposure which is why we provide the most technologically advanced system of digital X-Rays for all of our patients. Digital X-Rays will soon become the standard of care throughout the field of dentistry because they provide the Dr. with highly detailed diagnostic images while drastically reducing the level of patient exposure to radiation. The reduction in exposure can be as much as 80%! Digital x-rays also do not require any chemical processing which eliminates environmental impact on our local Southwestern Colorado area.
