About Digital X-Rays
When it comes to dentistry, x-rays are an essential part of examining smiles and overall oral health along with diagnosing a range of conditions. Digital radiography is the latest technology used to obtain dental x-rays, utilizing an electronic sensor instead of traditional x-ray film. With digital x-rays, the images are captured and stored on a computer, allowing your dentist to easily view them, magnify them and even send them to another specialist. Digital x-rays reduce radiation by about 80-90% in comparison in comparison to traditional, film x-rays.
Wondering how digital x-rays can help diagnose? We often use them to examine:
- Bone Loss
- Tooth Decay
- Development Issues
- Malpositioned Teeth
- Poor Root Positions
Are Dental X-Rays Safe?
While being exposed to radiation is never the healthiest thing in the world, our digital x-rays reduce the amount of radiation our patients are exposed to by up to 90%. Digital x-rays are much more effective, safe and healthy for both our patients and the planet we live on.
How Often Should I Receive Digital X-Rays?
At the Center for Adult Dental Care, we recommend digital x-rays with each routine visit. For patients with healthy smiles, routine visits should be scheduled every 6 months. For those with chronic dental issues, more frequent x-rays and visits may be recommended.
