Digital X-ray Examination

Dentists use radiographs for many reasons: to find hidden dental structures, malignant or benign masses, bone loss, and cavities. X-rays can help dentist to diagnose and determine the presence or degree of periodontal disease, abscesses, and many abnormal growths, such as cysts and tumors. X-rays also can show the exact location of impacted and un-erupted teeth, and pinpoint the location of cavities and other signs of disease.

We use digital X-ray sensors instead of traditional photographic film. Advantages include time efficiency through bypassing chemical processing and the ability to digitally transfer and enhance images. Also 80% less radiation can be used to produce an image of similar contrast to conventional radiography.
