An essential component to a thorough examination!
Digital radiographs are used in place of traditional "x-rays" to capture an image of your teeth and mouth using a digital sensor instead of film. These radiographs provide an instantaneous high-quality diagnostic image on our computer screen while using up to 90% less radiation. Digital radiographs are used to diagnose and monitor disease of the teeth, bones, and gums.
Radiographs are an essential component to a thorough examination-- while often not necessary at every visit, check-up radiographs, known as "bite wings" should be updated yearly.
