Digital X-rays

Digital x-rays are effective methods of capturing diagnostic images for our patients. They emit 90% less radiation than film x-rays, give high-quality pictures in under 5 seconds without hazardous developer chemicals, and can be quickly shared with referring professionals. With this technology, we can identify tooth structure or bone changes more accurately, resulting in improved overall dental treatment for our patients.

Panoramic X-rays

Panoramic dental x-rays provide a complete view of the mouth. The result is a flat depiction of the curving structure of the jaw, including the teeth, upper and lower jaws, TMJ joints, and nasal and sinus areas.

How Are Panoramic X-rays Taken?

The panoramic X-ray gives the dentist a two-dimensional image of both the upper and lower jaws - from ear to ear. Panoramic X-rays are most commonly used to reveal wisdom teeth' location and ensure dental implants are properly placed. Panoramic X-rays are a powerful diagnostic tool that may also be used to plan future treatment. Because less radiation enters the body, they are safer than other forms of x-rays. Please contact your dentist if you have any questions or concerns concerning panoramic x-rays.

Benefits of Using X-rays

The following are some of the benefits of utilizing digital x-rays:
 

  • Show areas of deterioration that a visual inspection may not reveal

  • Locate decay that is forming under an existing infill

  • Look for cracks or other signs of damage in an existing filling

  • Identify root canal issues such as infection

  • Assists our staff in implants and orthodontic treatments like Invisalign

  • Identify anomalies like cysts and cancer

Oral Sedation

Dental-phobic patients might benefit greatly from oral sedation to preserve good dental health. Did you know that up to 20% of people fear the dentist? If you are one of them, have a nervous family member, or know someone who avoids coming to the dentist on a regular basis, oral sedation may be an option for you.
 

Oral sedation is a drug that relaxes you efficiently. Because you will not be asleep, you will be able to converse clearly and readily follow directions during your session. Oral sedative medicine comes in a variety of forms. We will discuss the optimal type and level for you.
