X-rays have been in dental offices for years. Like in a doctor’s office, dentists use x-rays to see what is underneath the layers of tissue. At our office, you won’t find bulky x-rays that expose you to high levels of radiation. Your health is important to us, which is why we use digital x-rays.
Some of the advantages of this technology include:
- Faster process than traditional x-rays
- Allows images to be viewed instantly
- Emits 80 percent less radiation
- Produces more enhanced images
- The images can be easily stored electronically for quick retrieval
X-rays are useful in allowing us to see potential dental problems that can’t be seen with the naked eye, such as roots of your teeth. X-rays also help us see the teeth in the back of your mouth. Certain procedures such as root canals and wisdom teeth extractions utilize digital x-rays to make sure we can always achieve the best results.
Digital radiography is an advanced technology that speeds treatment and helps us make the most accurate and efficient diagnosis of your dental condition. With digital x-rays we can help you get on the road to recovery and healing quicker.
X-rays may be part of the examination process at your bi-annual teeth cleaning appointment, socontact us today to get a good look at what’s happening with your oral health.
