Our team has always been determined to provide you and family with the best possible dental care and a comfortable 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 dental X-rays use up to 90 percent 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 also gives us high-quality images that we can easily manipulate – expand, adjust the light/dark contrast, and more – to better assess your current oral health.
Using these dental X-rays, our experienced dentists can 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 dental X-rays to plan treatments such as dental implants, tooth extraction – including wisdom teeth removals – and root canal treatments. Call us today to learn more about how we use digital radiography to take care of your smile!
