Digital x-rays are quickly becoming adopted by a large percentage of the dental industry. A digital x-ray allows the dentist to take an image of the tooth or teeth and put it into an imaging program. Within this imaging program, there are a number of tools that will allow the dentist to take a very close look at the teeth and surrounding structures with amazing accuracy.
Radiographs enable us to detect cavities in between teeth, determine bone level, and analyze the health of the bone. We can also examine the roots and nerves of the teeth, diagnosed lesions such as cysts or tumors, as well as assess damage when trauma occurs.
