X-rays are used at our practice as both a preventive and diagnostic measure. They allow our dentist to see problems that are likely to develop and also see established issues. There are a variety of types of dental X-rays that are used, dependent on the patient and what their individual dental needs are.
Having a clearer, high-detail view of the roots of the teeth and the surrounding bones is fundamental for overall dental health care, so having X-rays, when appropriate, is a priority. At our practice, we use digital radiography which uses up to 90% less radiation than conventional X-rays.
Our X-rays send the images of your teeth and oral structure to a computer that then allows us to treat and prevent any issues that may arise. If you have any questions or concerns about the use of X-rays, make sure to ask your dentist or dental hygienist for more information. Our patients’ health and well-being is the foundation of every treatment or procedure we use at our practice.
