Digital Imaging

State-of-the-Art Orthodontics & Pediatric Dental Care in Gurnee & Vernon Hills, IL

Here at Affiliated Dental Specialists, our Orthodontists and Pediatric Dentists use one of the latest technological advances in dentistry – digital radiography (X-rays.) Digital x-rays can be viewed instantly, and help us determine individualized treatment plans for patient care.

General dentists, pediatric dentists and orthodontists have been using x-rays to capture and diagnose different dental, pediatric and orthodontic problems since the beginning of modern dentistry. Over the last couple of years, digital imaging has changed this, and it is now the preferred way to create an image of a patient’s teeth and supporting bone structure. Digital X-rays are much safer for our patients, producing significantly lower (80-90%) radiation exposure, making them much safer than conventional x-rays of the past. This is just one of the advantages we have over other orthodontists and pediatric dentists in the Gurnee, Vernon Hills, Grayslake and Libertyville, IL areas.

Why Are Digital X-rays Better?

  • Lower levels of radiation
  • Better for your body
  • No wait times – images are created instantly
  • More comfortable for you, the patient
  • Zero disposal of hard copies, eliminating their environmental impact.

Digital Photographs

We use digital photographs throughout treatment to track the transformation of your teeth and bone structure. With these photographs, our dental specialists are able to see track your child’s dental growth as well as the movement and amazing before-and-after results that our treatments like Clarity clear braces and Sure Smile clear aligners can provide.

Electronic Record Keeping

Each of our Gurnee and Vernon Hills, IL patients has a secure computerized dental chart where we store his/her digital x-rays and digital photographs. Whether you are at our Gurnee office or our Vernon Hills office, your records can be accessed at any time. There is always a record readily available for all of our dental specialists to consult or for us to share with your dentist.
