What are digital x-rays?
Digital x-ray uses digital sensors to capture images of teeth, bones, and surrounding structures. Our doctors can use these images to diagnose and treat various dental problems. For example, dentists can use digital x-ray images to see cavities, assess the health of teeth and gums, find impacted teeth, and create a treatment plan. Digital x-rays provide nearly 80% less radiation than traditional x-rays.
What can a dental x-ray detect?
Dental x-rays can detect a variety of dental problems, including:
- Tooth decay
- Gum disease
- Bone loss
The digital x-ray images can also be used to create a treatment plan for patients who need smile restorations, such as dental implants or braces.
Digital x-rays are an essential part of comprehensive dental care. If you have any questions about digital x-rays or would like to schedule an appointment, please contact us today. We will be happy to answer any of your questions and help you get started on the path to a healthy smile!
How is a digital x-ray used at Tencza & Pugliese Dental?
At Tencza & Pugliese Dental, digital x-rays are used to diagnose and treat dental problems. The images are used to plan dental treatments such as dental implants or root canal treatment. During an appointment, patients can see the images of their teeth on a computer screen in real-time. Digital x-ray provides an accurate view of the teeth and surrounding tissues, which helps to ensure patients receive the best possible care.
Benefits of Digital X-Rays
In addition to the accuracy and comfort described previously, a dental x-ray offers several advantages. Digital technology also provides quick transferability of files if needed, and the digital x-ray image is easy to store and access. In addition, digital images enhance patient care by providing more information that our doctors can use to diagnose and treat dental problems. Our dentist can also use digital images to compare with future x-rays, helping to detect changes in the teeth and gums.
Are digital x-rays safe?
Yes. Digital x-rays provide less radiation exposure to patients than traditional x-rays. The digital sensors are very sensitive and produce high-quality images almost instantly. With digital x-rays, the radiation exposure is reduced by up to 80%. We still use proper protection for each patient, such as a lead apron, because any radiation exposure is not desirable.
How often should digital x-rays be taken?
The frequency of digital x-rays taken at Tencza & Pugliese Dental will be based on the needs of each patient. X-rays will be taken at least once a year during a regular dental visit for most patients. However, the dentist may recommend more frequently for those with dental concerns.
