Digital X-rays are quickly becoming adopted by a large percentage of the dental industry, including our dentist, Dr. Stella O. Nnadi. A digital X-ray allows our 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 our dentist to take a very close look at the teeth and surrounding structures with amazing accuracy.
Digital X-rays can be used to diagnose many oral health concerns, such as:
- Tooth decay
- Crookedness, improper spacing and crowding of teeth
- Problems with growth and development
- Abscesses and cysts
- Breaks and fractures
- Endodontic infections
- Loss of bone
- And more
As a benefit to the patient, the digital X-ray also provides nearly 80 percent less radiation than a standard X-ray. This is due to the fact that the digital version of the X-ray uses a sensor that is much more sensitive to this radiation than the film used in a traditional X-ray. Digital X-rays have been specifically designed with the patient in mind.
