Digital x-rays are one of the most significant advances in modern dentistry. The capability of our new sensors to take high quality images at a fraction of the already low radiation doses has some wonderful benefits for our patients. In fact the radiation dose that our new imaging software uses is so low that our staff can take them chair-side with you. No more sitting there for an uncomfortably long time while your hygienist dives for cover leaving you feeling like you’re about to start glowing.
Digital x-rays allow us to see deep into the teeth, gums, bone, and soft tissue. This enables us to properly diagnose things such as abscesses, cavities, unerupted teeth, fractures, pathology, compromised existing dental work, and gum disease.
