Digital X-rays represent a significant advancement in diagnostic technology, revolutionizing the way we provide dental care. Compared to traditional film X-rays, digital radiography offers a faster, more comfortable and more convenient experience for patients. This technology employs a digital sensor to capture images of your teeth, eliminating the need for film and chemicals in the development process. Not only does this streamline the procedure, but it also reduces radiation exposure significantly, ensuring your safety.
The advantages of digital X-rays extend beyond efficiency and safety. Our dentist can instantly access high-quality images on monitors within the treatment room. This immediate access enhances our ability to provide you with efficient and accurate diagnoses, and enables us to more easily identify and effective, individualized treatment for a wide range of dental issues, including:
- Decay between teeth
- Developmental abnormalities
- Improper tooth root positioning
- Fractures in teeth or existing fillings
- Infection in tooth nerves
- Bone loss
- And more!
Moreover, digital dental X-rays play a pivotal role in planning different dental treatments, such as oral surgeries, root canal procedures, dental implants and orthodontic treatments.
