Dr. Shaileshkumar Bhatt and our team use digital X-rays to examine your teeth and supporting oral structures. Digital X-rays are a common diagnostic tool that allow us to understand your oral health needs so that we can plan treatments that will promote a healthy mouth and smile.
Digital X-rays allow us to view high-quality images nearly instantaneously on a nearby monitor. They are also very safe for use, reducing the radiation exposure associated with X-rays significantly. With digital imaging, photos are captured quickly and comfortably using a digital sensor. This means that no toxic chemicals are needed and that we can view the captured images with you to discuss our findings and help you understand what is happening in your mouth.
Digital X-rays aid in diagnosing a wide range of problems, including:
- Tooth decay
- Developmental abnormalities
- Abnormal tooth root positioning
- Bone loss
- Fractures in teeth and existing fillings
They also aid in treatment planning, including:
- Oral surgery procedures
- Root canal therapy
- Dental implant placement
- Orthodontic treatment
All X-ray devices are inspected regularly to ensure that they are safe to use and are functioning properly.
