Dentists have been using X-rays for years to diagnose problems and create treatment plans. At Beyond Dental Health we use digital X-rays. This technology makes X-rays safer for you, lowers our carbon footprint and makes it easier for us to store and protect your information.
Digital X-rays are one of the advanced diagnostic tools used to provide you with the most advanced care. Digital radiography has changed the way we take dental X-rays. Digital X-rays are faster and more convenient than ever before. Unlike traditional X-rays that use film, digital X-rays use a sensor in order to take images of your teeth. These X-rays use significantly less radiation than conventional film x-rays. Digital x-rays 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 an efficient and accurate diagnosis.
Our team is able to use digital radiography to identify and diagnose several types of dental problems, such as:
- Decay in between teeth
- Developmental abnormalities
- Improper tooth root positioning
- Cysts and abscesses
- Fractures in existing fillings
- Infection in the tooth nerves
- Bone loss
Digital dental X-rays are used to plan dental treatments such as: oral surgery procedures, root canal treatment, dental implants, orthodontics and more. To learn more about digital radiography and how we use x-rays at our office, please call or visit our office soon.
