In today’s modern dental practices, digital X-rays have become an indispensable tool, revolutionizing the way oral health is assessed and diagnosed. Digital X-rays are a cutting-edge technology that has become far more efficient than traditional film X-rays.
Digital X-rays are typically recommended in various scenarios, such as routine dental check-ups with Dr. Roger Richter, when assessing the extent of dental decay, planning for orthodontic treatment or investigating dental trauma. They are also invaluable in identifying issues like impacted teeth, infections and cysts that are not visible during a visual examination. Essentially, digital X-rays help our dentist get a comprehensive view of your oral health, making them a vital tool for accurate diagnosis and treatment planning.
During your X-rays, you can expect a comfortable and efficient experience. You will be asked to wear a lead apron to protect from radiation, and a small sensor will be placed in your mouth. The process is quick, painless and emits significantly less radiation compared to traditional X-rays, ensuring your safety and well-being.
Digital X-rays provide instant results, allowing us to assess your oral health in real-time. Moreover, they are environmentally friendly, as they eliminate the need for chemical processing. The images can be easily stored, shared and compared for accurate monitoring of your dental health over time. Overall, these advanced imaging techniques enhance the quality of dental care by enabling better diagnoses and treatment planning.
