Using the most advanced and effective dental technologies is every bit as important as staying current with the latest treatment techniques. One of the technologies used here at Care Dental Spa is digital X-rays. Unlike traditional film X-rays, digital X-rays use a small digital sensor to capture detailed information about your teeth and supporting structures, providing our dentist with precise images and making it easier to diagnose and treat developing problems.

Our team may use digital X-rays to detect a wide range of dental issues, including:

  • Cavities, including decay between the teeth
  • Developmental abnormalities
  • Improper tooth root positioning
  • Cysts, abscesses and tumors
  • Nerve infections
  • Bone loss
  • Fractures in the teeth or in existing restorations

X-rays are also used to aid in treatment planning for oral surgery procedures, root canal treatment, dental implants and orthodontics, among other types of treatment.

Digital X-rays also offer many benefits beyond diagnosis, treatment planning and precise procedures. One of their foremost benefits is reduced radiation exposure. Digital X-rays produce up to 90% less radiation than film radiography – less radiation than what you are exposed to by the sun in your day-to-day life. They also are more environmentally friendly, as they eliminate the need for chemical developing agents for film images.

Digital X-rays also enhance patient comfort and convenience. The process is quicker and less intrusive, with no need for uncomfortable X-ray films or cumbersome processing equipment. Moreover, these high-quality images are instantly available for review on computer monitors within the treatment room, facilitating prompt and precise diagnoses.
