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
  • Tumors
  • 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.
