We offer digital radiography in our practice.
The advantage to these over traditional radiographs is upto 90% less radiation exposure and a much faster result.
The images appear on a screen within seconds and can be enlarged to show patients exactly what the images show. Dental radiographs are a necessary part of optimal dental care, as they allow practitioners to be able to see and interpret signs of disease or potential problems that are not visible by direct clinical examinations.
Radiographs are essential in identifying:
- Impacted teeth
- Presence or degree of periodontal (gum) disease
- Location and severity of cavities not visible to the naked eye
- General health of the jaw bone and temporomandibular joint
