Digital X-rays

Digital radiography ( x-ray) is the latest technology available to produce high resolution images while absolutely minimizing the levels of radiation. Digital x-rays can provide valuable information that is unseen to the dentist. Without x-rays, problems can go on without detection.  Not only are digital x-rays better for the health and safety of the patient, they are faster and more comfortable to take and don’t require the use of a large mouthpiece. Also, there is no need to develop the x-rays using chemicals, thus eliminating the disposal of harmful waste into the environment.

Dental x-rays may reveal:
Abscesses or cysts
Bone loss
Cancerous and non-cancerous tumors
Decay between the teeth
Developmental abnormalities
Poor tooth and root positions
Problems inside a tooth or below the gum line

Detecting and treating dental problems at an early stage will save you time, money and unnecessary discomfort.
