Digital X-rays and imaging
There are many guidelines that we follow when choosing X-rays. Radiographs allow us to see everything we cannot see with our own eyes. Radiographs enable us to detect cavities in between your teeth, determine bone level, and analyze the health of your bone. We can also examine the roots and nerves of teeth, diagnose lesions such as cysts or tumors, as well as assess damage when trauma occurs.
Dental radiographs are invaluable aids in diagnosing, treating, and maintaining dental health and is part of a comprehensive exam. Exposure time for dental radiographs is extremely minimal. With digital imaging, exposure time is about 50 percent less when compared to traditional radiographs. Digital imaging can also help us retrieve valuable diagnostic information. Digital X-rays offer more precision since we view the image on a computer monitor. Digital X-rays results in 1/6th the radiation exposure to you.
