Digital X-rays (Less Radiation Exposure)

We use x-rays, also known as radiographs, as part of our routine dental exams. Many issues with teeth and the surrounding tissues and bones cannot be seen by the naked eye, so x-rays are needed to show:

  • Small areas of decay between teeth or below existing restorations (fillings, crowns, and bridges)
  • Deep cavities under the surface of teeth
  • Infections inside the jaw
  • Deep gum infections spreading into the jaw
  • Abscesses or cysts not on the mouth’s surface
  • Developmental abnormalities
  • Some types of tumors
Digital X-Rays in Allen, TX Dental Center to Minimize Radiation Exposure

Digital x-rays are comfortable for patients, and they are more convenient because they are faster than traditional x-rays, with images ready to be viewed on a computer or TV screen in seconds. Digital x-rays are also safe. Some studies cite that digital x-rays emit up to 90% less radiation, and they can even be used during pregnancy if absolutely necessary. Since no chemical processing is required for digital x-ray images, they are another way we try to do our part to be kind to the environment and our community.

Panoramic X-rays (Digital)

Panoramic x-rays are generally taken every 5-7 years. They are different from regular digital x-rays because they show the sinuses and entire mouth, making them particularly revealing dental diagnostic tools. We take regular digital x-rays with smaller equipment in our private treatment rooms, but when you require panoramic x-rays, we take them in our dedicated panoramic x-ray room. Contact us to learn more.
