Digital X-rays are a diagnostic tool used to examine your mouth, including your teeth, tooth roots and other oral structures. They are used to identify and treat a wide range of problems, including:
- Cavities and decay between your teeth
- Improper tooth root positioning
- Cysts, abscesses and tumors
- Developmental abnormalities
- Bone loss
- Fractures in teeth, fillings or other restoration
- Infection in the tooth nerves
Digital X-rays are also used to plan treatments such as oral surgery procedures, root canal therapy, dental implant placement and orthodontic care.
Digital X-rays work by using a small sensor to capture images of your teeth and supporting structure. The captured images are then transmitted to a nearby monitor where our dentists can view them to understand your oral health needs and make a diagnosis. The X-ray process is quick, comfortable and completely safe for use.
