Digital x-rays are extremely useful when diagnosing a problem and preparing a treatment plan. These high-resolution images help dentists see the teeth, bone and gums, while minimizing a patient’s exposure to radiation.
Advantages of digital x-rays
This type of imaging can show many anomalies at an early stage. We can therefore detect bone loss, interdental cavities and problems inside a tooth or under the gums.
A very useful technology
From a medical standpoint, there are many advantages to using this technology. From an efficiency standpoint, digital x-rays enable us to take practically instantaneous pictures of your mouth. These types of x-rays can easily be transferred to a third party (e.g. insurance company).
