Digital x-rays are a standard part of many dental examinations, but not all patients understand just how much they can benefit from this modern dental technology. Prevention is crucial when it comes to taking care of your oral health, and digital x-rays enable Dr Huang to see below the surface of the teeth. The tiniest bit of tooth decay might not be visible in a visual examination, but when it is viewed with an x-ray, it can be treated with a minimally invasive filling.
Digital x-rays can also discover other abnormalities in your mouth, helping to ensure you get treatment earlier rather than later.
Patients who might be concerned about radiation from digital x-rays needn’t be. They expose patients to far less radiation than their traditional film x-ray counterparts, so they are safe for most people. If you know or think you might be pregnant, please be sure to mention that to us; we can determine whether it makes more sense to wait to take an x-ray.
