Our Practice carefully chooses which and when radiographs are taken. Radiographs(X-rays) allow us to see everything we cannot see with our own eyes. Radiographs enable us to detect cavities in between your teeth, determine bone levels, and can often determine if root canal treatment is necessary. We can also examine the roots and nerves of teeth, diagnose lesions such as cysts or tumors, as well as assess damage when trauma occurs.
Dental radiographs are invaluable aids in diagnosing, treating, and maintaining dental health. Exposure time for digital dental radiographs is extremely minimal. Our practice utilizes Dexis Digital Radiography within the office. With digital imaging, exposure time is about 90 percent less when compared to traditional radiographs.
Digital imaging allows us to store patient images on a computer and access these images instantly.
