Digital Dental X-Rays Services Greeley
Digital x-rays are widely used by doctors regardless of the type of treatment that the patient needs. Without detailed visual information, dentists can’t treat their patients since they will be going in blind and could end up doing more harm! That’s why it’s common in our dental office to perform Digital X-rays of the patients and identify the mouth, teeth, and jaw structure to execute the treatment with precision. Imagery that our dentists get from Digital X-rays regarding the patients allows the dental treatment process to go more smoothly and comfortably.
Digital X-rays use digital sensors to create accurate visualization of the inner structure of the patient. The imagery produced is far better than the results that the traditional X-rays offered in terms of better quality image and significantly lesser usage of radiation which is harmful to the human body. The clear picture quality allows our dentists to accurately know which areas need treatment and what kind of dental healthcare services the patient requires. Through this technology, our dentists can diagnose the following dental problems:
- Decay in between teeth
- Developmental abnormalities
- Improper tooth root positioning
- Cysts and abscesses
- Fractures in existing fillings
- Infection in the tooth nerves
- Bone loss
The technology of Digital X-rays has simplified many dental and oral surgical procedures and allowed dentists to produce much better results than before.
