What are digital X-rays?
Our team is devoted to offering you the highest quality of dental care available, and we work hard to protect and improve your smile. To help us accomplish our goals, our team provides thorough dental examinations. During our dental exams, we will perform a thorough cleaning and inspect your mouth for any signs of potential dental complications. One of the services our team uses to protect your oral health is digital X-rays. The images provided by these X-rays allow us to provide you with the most convenient, advanced dental care possible.
Digital radiography uses a digital sensor, rather than X-ray film as is used in traditional radiography, to capture high-quality, nearly instantaneous images of your teeth, jawbone, and supporting structures. Our dentist and team are then able to detect and diagnose a number of dental problems with digital X-rays, including tooth decay, infection in the tooth nerve, bone loss, developmental abnormalities, and more.
What are the benefits of digital X-rays?
One important advantage of digital X-rays is the fact that these devices use much less radiation than traditional dental X-rays. Also, digital X-rays develop more quickly without the need of a dark room. The images taken by digital radiography are sent directly to a computer screen, where Dr. Michael P. Gaudio can forward your images for second opinions or to a specialist if necessary. Furthermore, the images are higher quality, which helps our team provide the most accurate diagnosis and treatment possible. If you have any questions about the benefits of digital radiography in Wallingford, Connecticut, please feel free to contact us today. We look forward to caring for your smile!
