One of our most useful and commonly used diagnostic tools is the digital X-ray. Digital radiography has changed the way our dentist and team approaches dental procedures, because we can instantly view high-quality images of your smile on a monitor in your treatment room.
Digital X-rays use low-radiation and a digital sensor to take images of your teeth. Unlike traditional X-rays that used film, chemicals and high levels of radiation to develop images of your teeth, digital X-rays allow us to see the results of your X-ray immediately and without harming your body.
Typically, we will use digital radiography during your first appointment, so we can view aspects of your smile that aren’t seen by the naked eye. This allows us to give you a more personalized treatment plan that is geared toward your needs.
This Tool Can Diagnose:
- Decay between the teeth
- Developmental abnormalities
- Poor tooth root positioning
- Fractures in fillings
- Infection in tooth nerves
- Bone loss
We Can Plan the Following Treatments Based on Your X-Rays:
- Oral surgery
- Root canal treatment
- Dental implants
