Digital Dental X-Rays
Dental x-rays have always been among the lowest in radiation in the medical field. The implementation of digital dental x-rays has allowed us to reduce radiation emissions 80-90 percent further, making them extremely safe.
Periodic x-rays help us diagnose conditions such as decay, infection, cysts, and certain types of tumors. We can also use x-rays to determine bone levels when we are planning dental implant placement.
Typically, we take dental x-rays once a year for healthy patients. Of course, if you experience a dental emergency, we may need to take additional x-rays to diagnose your condition.
Because they are digital, we can bring your x-rays up on our in-room monitors and show you the condition of your teeth and dental bone. Since they are stored securely, your private information is safe. Should you require a referral to a specialist, digital x-rays are easy to transfer, making inter-office communication seamless.
