Digital X-rays, just like digital impressions, help us perform advanced diagnostic tests for a much more accurate look at the patient’s smile to create the most accurate treatment plans and determine what’s happening below the surface of your gums. The process is much faster, more convenient, comfortable, and safer as the software processes images better and all equipment uses less radiation. Digital X-rays use a digital sensor to take images of the teeth instead of a film like traditional X-rays. There are many benefits, including exposure to significantly less radiation which will make many patients feel much better about pursuing orthodontic care. Digital X-rays are also more environmentally friendly because they don’t require chemicals to develop. Digital X-rays provide instant images of your teeth that your orthodontist can display on monitors in the treatment room. Digital X-rays allow for the most accurate diagnoses and effective treatment plans. Digital radiography allows our experts to diagnose orthodontic and dental issues, such as:
- Tooth decay in interdental spaces.
- Dental development abnormalities.
- Tooth malalignment.
- Dangerous cysts and abscesses caused by infections.
- Dental fractures or structural decay of fillings.
- Tumors and abnormal growths.
- Soft tissue infections.
- Bone tissue loss.
That’s right! Dental X-rays can help plan accurate and customized orthodontic treatment plans, but it’s not just with orthodontics. Oral surgery procedures, endodontics, dental implant, and more can benefit from efficient and safe digital x-ray technology.
