One of the most frequently used technologies at Smile Studio Dental are digital X-rays. Our dentist utilizes this advanced device to take pictures of your teeth and supporting structures, and to quickly identify any developing problems.
Digital radiography has changed the way that X-rays are taken, making the process faster, more comfortable, and more convenient. Digital X-rays capture images of your mouth by using a special sensor, and they do not require the use of any chemicals to develop the images. Instead, these pictures are projected almost instantly onto nearby monitors for our dentist to view, allowing us to give you a highly accurate diagnosis in record time.
Digital X-rays are most frequently used to diagnose the following dental problems:
- Tooth decay, especially in the areas between the teeth
- Developmental abnormalities
- Improper positioning of the tooth roots
- Fractures in existing fillings
- Infection in the tooth nerves
- Bone loss
Digital radiography is also used in planning dental treatments, including surgical procedures and root canal therapy. It is completely safe for use, producing 80-90% less radiation that traditional film radiography.
