Dental x-rays are a primary tool for early identification of dental problems. X-rays are primarily used to detect internal tooth decay, cysts (fluid filled sacks at the base of your teeth), tumors, impacted teeth, and teeth that are still erupting. We can detect issues with x-rays before they become problems, saving you money in the long run by preventing the need for more expensive procedures or surgeries.
We can take an image of a tooth or teeth and put it into an imaging program, which gives us a number of tools that will allow us to take a very close look at the teeth and surrounding structures with amazing accuracy.
As a benefit to you, the digital x-ray also provides nearly 80% less radiation than a standard x-ray. This is due to the fact that the digital version of the x-ray is much more sensitive to this radiation and has been specifically designed with the patient in mind.
