Our dentist makes use of digital X-rays in order to provide you with accurate diagnoses and treatments that are tailored more precisely to your individual needs. There are many benefits to using digital X-rays as part of your treatment planning, including:
• A faster, more comfortable imaging process
• Easy examination of areas not visible to the eye
• More accurate diagnosis of dental problems
• Easier and more effective treatment planning and procedures
Digital X-rays use digital sensors to capture images of your teeth. This not only makes the imaging process faster, but also exposes you to less radiation and does not require the use of any toxic chemicals to develop the captured image. In fact, digital X-rays produce 80-90% less radiation than traditional film radiography.

Our dentist may use a digital X-ray to identify the following oral health problems:
• Tooth decay
• Cysts and abscesses
• Developmental abnormalities
• Incorrect root positions
• Fractures or cracks in the tooth
• Tumors
• Infection
• Bone loss
The images captured will also aid in planning and carrying out your treatments, especially if you are receiving an oral surgery procedure, a root canal, or a dental implant.

If you have any questions about digital X-rays, we welcome you to contact our office. We will be happy to provide you with more information about how this technology is used in our practice, and help you schedule an appointment with our experienced dentist.
