DENTAL X-RAYS

This powerful machine can measure bone density, scan for infections, determine the best place to position implants, as well as reveal airway obstructions. It is an essential and preventive mechanism to effectively diagnose problems and administer necessary treatment to our patients.

WHAT CAN DENTAL X-RAYS REVEAL?

  • Loss Of Bone
  • Abscesses Or Cysts
  • Cancerous And Non-Cancerous Tumors
  • Tooth Decay And Emerging Abnormalities
  • Poor Root And Tooth Positions
  • Problems Inside Tooth Structure
  • Problems Below Gum Line

It’s important to detect and treat dental problems at the earliest stage possible in order to save you time, money, and to ultimately preserve your dental health.

ARE DENTAL X-RAYS SAFE?

The digital X-ray is state-of-the-art technology. An electronic sensor captures and stores the digital image on a computer instead of an X-ray film. These images can be instantly viewed and enlarged on a computer, allowing your dentist to detect the problems with greater ease and start treatment immediately. This modern technology also helps in reducing radiation levels by as much as 80-90% compared to traditional dental X-rays.

HOW OFTEN SHOULD DENTAL X-RAYS BE TAKEN?

We conduct X-rays based on your needs. This usually follows a thorough dental examination where we also review your medical history. Factors such as your age, as well as the risk of diseases, are considered before performing an X-ray.

It is advised that you undergo a full mouth series of digital X-rays on your first visit to our clinic.
