At our office, we use digital X-rays to evaluate your smile. Unlike the X-rays in the past, digital X-rays are safer for you and the environment since they use significantly less radiation than traditional X-rays. The images appear instantly on a computer screen and require no film or developing chemicals. Many people find that digital X-rays are more comfortable than the conventional X-rays used in dental offices in the past. The images themselves are of extremely high quality and will allow us to give you a comprehensive exam. Our dentist can use digital X-rays to plan your course of treatment, track changes in your teeth and oral health, and locate problems, including:
- Decay between teeth
- Problems with the position of your tooth roots
- Developmental problems or abnormalities
- Cysts, abscesses, tumors and infections
- Damage to fillings
- Bone loss
- Infected nerves
Digital X-rays can also be used to evaluate the effectiveness of your treatment.
Our dentist will often use digital X-rays as part of your routine checkup or as part of many other treatments, such as implants, root canal therapy or orthodontics.
