Wilton Dental Associates uses the safest radiograph technology that is available today. Our paralleling x-ray technique, utilizing long-cone-paralleling combined with the newest DEXIS Platinum Digital X-ray system improves on the radiation exposure of standard x-rays by as much as 90%.
Our technology completely prevents radiation exposure to any area of the body other than the teeth, thus totally eliminating the need for lead aprons and the fear of radiation exposure by women who are pregnant or nursing. (We do still use lead aprons for their psychological value.) In fact, the radiation received from a complete x-ray series of sixteen films is only equal to what you would get during a week at home from normal background radiation (not counting what comes from higher radiation sources such as television, microwave, computer terminals, laptops, cellphones, etc)
