Digital X-Rays are used by dental professionals as an essential diagnostic tool that aids in the prevention and treatment of many different dental conditions. A digital x-ray is the latest advancement in modern dental medicine that makes use of a digital sensor instead of an x-ray film to transmit the image of the patient’s mouth. The image is digitally captured and stored and is available for instant viewing on the computer screen. Many dental professionals prefer digital X-rays because of their ease of use and their reduction of radiation by as much as 80-90% over traditional X-rays.
Dental X-Rays aid in the diagnosis of:
- Tooth decay between the teeth
- Abnormal developments
- Tooth and root misalignments
- Cysts or abscesses
- Bone loss
- Cancerous tumors
- Non-cancerous tumors
- Developmental problems within a tooth and below the gum line
A full mouth series of digital X-rays are recommended for new patients so that the dentist can have a full understanding of each patient’s dental condition. We also recommend that once or twice a year additional bite wing X-rays be taken to check for any dental concerns such as tooth decay.
