Radiographs are used to detect cavities, determine bone levels, and examine roots and nerves allowing doctors to accurately diagnose patients. Our office utilizes Digital Imaging Technologies to ensure patients get the best diagnostic treatment with extremely minimal exposure. These digital x-rays make it easy for us to work efficiently with specialists and healthcare providers as well.
Dental radiographs (often called x-rays) are an important part of your dental care. Along with an oral examination, they provide your dentist with a more complete
view of what’s happening in your mouth.
BENEFITS OF DENTAL RADIOGRAPHS
A dental radiograph gives your dentist a picture of your hard tissues (teeth and bones) and the soft tissues that surround your teeth and jawbones.
For example, dental radiographs may help your dentist see caries (tooth decay) that develops between the teeth or under restorations (fillings);
diseases in the bone; periodontal (gum) disease; infections that develop under your gums; some types of tumors.
Dental radiographs can alert your dentist to changes in your hard and soft tissues. In children, radiographs allow the dentist to see how
their teeth and jawbones are developing. Like medical radiographs, dental radiographs allow your dentist to evaluate any injuries to your
face and mouth. Dental radiographs can help your dentist identify diseases and developmental problems before they become serious health issues. Early detection
of an infection or injury also can limit or prevent further damage to other areas of the mouth.
