By now, many of our patients have heard about digital X-rays. However, did you know our dentists at VIP Smiles started using digital X-rays in the mid-1980s, much earlier than most other dentists? We welcome you to contact us at 801-776-3000 to learn more about digital radiography in Syracuse, Utah, and schedule your appointment with Drs. Shad, Richard, and Clive Ingram.
Our team has always been dedicated to providing you with the best possible dental care and experience, and updating our office with the latest dental technology is one of the ways we strive to reach this goal. We use digital radiography because this technology safer, faster, and more comfortable for our patients than traditional film X-rays. Digital X-rays use up to 90% less radiation than film X-rays, and they provide our team with nearly instantaneous images that we can view on our computer monitors. Digital radiography gives us high-quality images that we can easily manipulate (expand and adjust the light/dark contrast) to better assess your current oral health.
Using these X-rays, our experienced dentists are able to identify a number of dental conditions and problems, including:
- Developmental abnormalities
- Decay in between teeth
- Infection in the tooth nerves
- Bone loss
- Abscesses and cysts
- Improper tooth root positioning
- Impacted wisdom teeth
- Cracks in existing fillings
- Tumors (cancerous and non-cancerous)
We also use digital radiography to plan treatments such as dental implants, tooth extraction (including wisdom teeth removal), and root canal therapy. Call us today to learn more about how we use digital radiography to take care of your smile!
