Our dentist strives to always offer his patients quick, effective diagnoses. To help him do so, our team is happy to utilize digital X-rays. These X-rays provide clearer images that can be enhanced, and they require far less radiation than traditional radiography. After the dentist has examined your X-rays, he will suggest the most effective treatment plan possible.
Digital X-rays are one of the advanced diagnostic tools we use to provide you with the best possible care. Digital radiography has changed the way we take dental X-rays by making the process faster, more comfortable, and more convenient than ever before. Digital X-rays use a digital sensor to take images of your teeth, unlike traditional X-rays that use film. Digital radiography uses significantly less radiation than conventional film X-rays, and they require the use of no chemicals for developing the images. Our dentist can then instantly view the high-quality images on monitors right in the treatment room to provide you with efficient, accurate diagnoses and care. Our team is able to use digital radiography to identify and diagnose several types of dental problems, such as:
- Decay in between teeth
- Developmental abnormalities
- Improper tooth root positioning
- Cysts and abscesses
- Fractures in existing fillings
- Infection in the tooth nerves
- Bone loss
We may also use digital X-rays to plan certain kinds of dental treatment, such as oral surgery procedures, root canal treatment, dental implants, and more.
