Dental x-rays are important preventative and diagnostic tool. They provide comprehensive information about a patient’s oral health, and give dental professionals the tools required to safely and accurately detect problems and abnormalities that may otherwise go unnoticed during a dental exam. Treating these issues early can potentially save you time, money, and most importantly, unnecessary pain and discomfort.
Digital x-rays are the latest innovation in dental x-ray technology. Fast and effective, they produce more accurate diagnoses than standard x-rays, while reducing patient exposure to radiation by approximately 90%. With digital x-rays, the film is immediately processed and ready to view, and can be stored on a computer for future reference and referral to other dentists, specialists, or orthodontists.
With the use of digital x-rays, our dental team is able to accurately detect and treat issues ranging from abscesses, cysts, and tumours to bone loss, tooth decay, and poor root position. When it comes to the patient experience, digital x-rays are smaller and offer a more comfortable experience than a traditional x-ray machine.
