What are dental X-rays?
Digital X-rays are an advanced diagnostic tool used to capture images of your teeth and supporting oral structures. Digital X-rays make the imaging process faster, more comfortable and more convenient than ever before, using a small digital sensor to capture images of your teeth and instantly transmit them to a nearby monitor for Dr. Nicole Chen to view. We can then diagnose any developing problems and create an appropriate treatment plan to meet your needs.
How are digital X-rays used in treatment?
Digital X-rays are used to diagnose and treat a wide range of dental problems, including:
- Tooth decay
- Developmental abnormalities
- Cysts, abscesses and tumors
- Cracks and fractures in teeth, fillings and other restorations
- Improper tooth root positioning
- Infection in the teeth and supporting bones
- Bone loss
X-rays are also used in planning many types of treatment, such as oral surgery procedures, root canal therapy, dental implant placement and orthodontic care.
Are digital X-rays safe?
Yes! In fact, digital X-rays emit up to 90% less radiation than film X-rays. They also do not require the use of any chemicals to develop images, making them very safe for use. Additionally, our practice follows all safety guidelines and regulations, including routine inspections and maintenance, to ensure that our X-ray machines and other equipment remain safe for use. We are committed to ensuring that our office is a healthy and safe environment for you.
