Digital X-rays or dental radiographs are essential preventative advanced diagnostic tools providing dentists and dental hygienists with valuable information to detect abnormalities that are not visible in a regular dental exam. This information helps in providing patients with an accurate treatment plan and the best care. Digital radiography has changed how dental X-rays are taken, making the process faster, comfortable, and convenient than before. Unlike traditional x-rays that use a film, digital X-rays use a digital sensor to take the necessary images of your teeth, using significantly lesser radiation than conventional X-rays since no chemicals are used to develop images. These high-quality images can be viewed instantly on monitors in the treatment room to provide patients with efficient, accurate diagnoses and care. At The Center For Holistic Dental Medicine, our team uses digital radiography to help identify and diagnose dental problems, such as:
- Decay in between teeth
- Developmental abnormalities
- Improper tooth root positioning
- Cysts and abscesses
- Fractures in existing fillings
- Infection in the tooth nerves
- Bone loss
Dr. MacFarlane also uses a unique digital x-ray unit called the PreXion Excelsior CBCT. This remarkable machine provides 3D images to help plan oral surgery procedures, dental implant placement, sleep apnea airway issues, sinus conditions, and more.
At The Center for Holistic Dental Medicine, we are happy to provide digital X-rays to our patients to help reduce their risk of radiation and give us a better view of your mouth.
