Digital Dental X-Rays

If your dentist still uses the obsolete method of putting a piece of cardboard-covered film between your teeth and telling you to, “bite down,” you’ll love the digital x-rays in Costa Rica.

As you can imagine, that old method of taking x-rays can sometimes lead to inaccuracies. The dentist would use the film—just that one view from one angle—to diagnose your problem and decide on a treatment. If there was any blurred or hidden areas, it may have affected your diagnosis and your treatment.

This is why dental clinics in Costa Rica—those working with international patients—invest in modern digital x-ray equipment. With digital x-rays, the view is much clearer, so diagnosis and treatment are much more accurate.

Dr. Jose Garita with Confidental Dental Clinic in San Jose says,

“Digital x-rays allow our dentists to obtain highly detailed and accurate views of the teeth and jaws. These images are 3-D, so we can see a patient’s entire dental structure from any angle.”

Dr. Garita, who uses digital x-rays himself, says that training is a must for any dentist today in order to be able to use the latest technology. “The best equipment in the world is useless if you don’t know how to operate it properly.” So, the top dentists in Costa Rica spend time training in order to offer patients the advantages of the latest developments in dental technology. This includes, of course, digital x-ray imaging.

For international patients, there is yet another advantage of digital x-rays: savings. Lower prices mean that you can come to Costa Rica, get the dental care you need, pocket the savings or spend them on a dream vacation in Costa Rica, and return home with a smile.
