Digital X-Rays use a digital format to store data, which can be pulled up easily during your next dental appointment.
Why use digital x-rays?
Digital x-rays are used to give a precise picture of your whole mouth. We are able to enlarge specific areas which can help the dentist better understand your situation. We are able to detect problems earlier, which can prevent issues from getting worse.
Are digital x-rays safe?
All x-rays produce at least some amount of radiation. However, these levels are safe and our team will take every precaution to ensure you feel comfortable during your x-ray.
How often do you need an x-ray?
We will inform you if you should be getting an x-ray during your next appointment. We can use the results of these x-rays to determine your customized treatment plans going forward.
What are Panoramic x-rays?
At Cornerstone Dentistry, we use panoramic x-rays to scan both the upper and lower jaws simultaneously. Using a panoramic x-ray helps give an overall scan of your dental health. We usually use panoramic x-rays as an important step in setting up dental treatment plans for injuries or impacted wisdom teeth.
