The dental world has progressed immensely in the last hundred years. One of the more innovative advancements that has occurred is the evolution of X-rays. Digital radiography has helped us develop a more convenient, faster way to take dental X-rays. This digital approach uses a sensor to take images of your teeth and jaw, unlike traditional X-rays, where film is needed. These were often taken with a patient biting down on film or holding a piece of film to the roof of their mouth. Digital X-rays provide a more comfortable and safer option for patients.
Clear Dental uses digital X-rays to evaluate your teeth and jaw, looking closely at any problems with fillings, root infections (which may need a root canal), developmental issues, changes in the mouth or teeth, and bone loss. Digital technology allows our team to instantly view high-quality images on our computers, so we can provide you with results quickly and efficiently. From there, our team will be able to diagnose and recommend any treatment needed.
