Why We Use Digital X-rays in Our Practice
Even the best dental instruments and sets of eyeglasses can’t see through your tooth enamel. The deep pits and grooves of your teeth, and the areas where your teeth touch one another are often some of the first places where tooth decay forms.
By taking low-radiation diagnostic x-rays on a periodic basis, we are able to safely screen for cavities. When we find tooth decay earlier, it’s smaller and more affordable to treat!
If you haven’t had dental x-rays in more than a year, we will likely suggest having a set taken. For people who are at a very high or low risk of dental problems, we will adjust the frequency as necessary.
