Digital X-Rays in DeLand

Girl holding x-rayOne of the primary diagnostic tools we use at DeLand Smiles is dental X-rays. Digital x-rays are quickly becoming adopted by a large percentage of the dental industry.

A digital x-ray allows the dentist to take an image of the tooth or teeth and put it into an imaging program. Within this imaging program, there are a number of tools that will allow the dentist to take a very close look at the teeth and surrounding structures with amazing accuracy.

Benefits of Digital X-Rays

As a benefit to the patient, the digital x-ray also provides nearly 80% less radiation than a standard x-ray. This is due to the fact that the digital version of the x-ray is much more sensitive to this radiation and has been specifically designed with the patient in mind.

Why Dental X-rays Are Necessary

There is only so much of your teeth and gums that we can see through a visual examination. However, X-ray images can alert us to all types of conditions, such as tooth decay between teeth or under existing fillings, gum disease, bone infections, abscesses, problems with teeth formation, and even tumors.

When we can identify these types of problems in their early stages, we can save you pain, discomfort, money and extended care in our office. Discovering serious conditions, such as tumors, may very well save your life, so the small amount of radiation that you are exposed to during the X-ray process is minimal when compared to the benefits of having them taken!

We recommend that you call us to determine whether it is time to schedule a routine dental care visit, which may include any necessary X-rays. At DeLand Smiles, we care about your dental health.
