Digital X Rays
Digital X-rays offer more precision since we view the image on a computer monitor, instead of holding up film up to the light. This means you can easily view the image as well so you are more informed about your dental conditions. Digital X-rays also result in much less radiation exposure to you than conventional film x-rays.
Dr. Audrey chooses carefully which and when radiographs are taken and she follows the ADA recommendations for when dental x-rays should be taken. Radiographs are essential to proper treatment because they allow us to see everything we cannot see with our eyes. Radiographs enable us to detect cavities in between your teeth, determine bone level, and analyze the health of your bone. We can also examine the roots and nerves of teeth, diagnose lesions such as cysts or tumors, as well as assess damage when trauma occurs.
Dental radiographs are invaluable aids in diagnosing, treating, and maintaining dental health and allows us to store patient images, and enables us to quickly and easily transfer them to specialists or insurance companies.
