Our full mouth x-rays and x-rays within the mouth are taken digitally which enables crystal clear imaging with only 10% of the radiation exposure required for the standard equivalent film x-ray. Digital images are pictures of the teeth, bones, and soft tissues around them to help find problems with the teeth, mouth, and jaw. Digital images can show cavities, hidden dental structures (such as wisdom teeth), and bone loss that cannot be seen during a visual examination. Digital images may also be done as follow-up after dental treatments.
Digital images are only taken when we believe it will directly benefit your dental health. Dental radiographs are routine to your dental health in order to provide you with the highest standard of care in through diagnosis and treatment planning.
