Taking clear and precise images of our patients’ oral structures provides our periodontists with a clear picture of the dental care you may need and we can provide a truly applicable treatment plan.
Digital X-rays are one of the advanced diagnostic tools we use to provide you with the best possible care. Digital radiography has changed the way we take dental X-rays by making the process faster, more comfortable, and more convenient than ever before. Digital X-rays use a digital sensor to take images of your teeth, unlike traditional X-rays that use film. Digital X-rays use significantly less radiation than conventional film X-rays, and they require the use of no chemicals for developing the images. Our dentists can then instantly view the high-quality images on monitors right in the treatment room to provide you with efficient, accurate diagnoses and care. Our team is able to use digital radiography to identify and diagnose several types of dental problems, such as:
- Bone loss
- Endodontic infections (infections in the nerve of the tooth)
- Decay in between teeth
- Developmental abnormalities
- Fractures in existing fillings or roots
