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. 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.
This x-ray views the entire tooth, root and bony structures in detail.
Horizontal bitewings view the tooth, bony structures that support the tooth and in between teeth.

This x-ray will take a view of the upper and lower jaws with less detail. However, it serves as a supplement to a full mouth series. This film is repeated every three to five years.
When placing implants, accuracy is key. Our cone beam provides us with a 3D representation of your jaw. Now, we are able to visualize all teeth and surrounding structures and place the implant in an ideal position.
