Why?, Advantages, Choices: What you as a patient should know


At Wilton Dental Associates we believe our patients deserve the safest and most accurate diagnostic equipment. Because Dr. Strait studied x-ray technique and technology under Dr. W. J. Updegrave at Temple University in Philadelphia, PA, and has continued with years of postdoctoral courses on the subject he wants for his patients only the newest and best x-ray equipment available. For this reason Wilton Dental Associates offers the:

Dental X-ray safety:

Dental X-rays are among the safest of all diagnostic procedures. For comparison:

In uSv (microsieverts) currently most common measuring unit

  • 5 uSv Dental X-ray
  • 10 uSv Background Dose received by average person on average day
  • 40 uSv Flight from NY to LA
  • 70 uSv Living in a stone, brick, or concrete building for a year.
  • 100 uSv Chest X-ray
  • 1500 uSv Spinal X-ray
  • 2000 uSv Natural background radiation we are all exposed to per year. (Note: Dose is higher for people living at high altitudes)
  • 3000 uSv Mammogram
  • 10,000 uSv CT Scan
    36,000 uSv Smoking 1.5 packs of cigarettes per day for a year

The Paralleling x-ray technique utilizing the Rinn XCP x-ray positioners.

The Paralleling technique results in extremely high quality x-rays with a minimum of distortion and is the most reliable technique for taking intraoral periapical dental x-rays. The film is placed parallel to the long axis of the tooth and the central beam is directed a right angles to the long axis of the tooth. Using the shielded long cone as show in the photo reduces scatter radiation considerably and also results in a clearer more exact x-ray. Dr Strait has chosen this technique for Wilton Dental Associates because of the superior results it produces as well as it outstanding safety.
