Here at Durango Laser Dentistry, we use digital X-rays as a faster way to view your smile. Unlike traditional X-rays, digital X-rays are designed with a digital sensor to take clearer images of your teeth and examine them instantly on our computer monitors instead of having to develop these images with film. These allow us to diagnose and plan the treatment you need to ensure you receive the best care possible.
What Can Digital X-Rays Help With?
Our dentist and team may use digital X-rays to look for:
- A misaligned bite
- Tooth decay
- Infection in the tooth nerves
- Bone loss in the jawbone
- Damage to existing fillings
- Cysts and abscesses
You might see us use digital X-rays for a variety of treatments, including root canal therapy, oral surgery and dental implants.
Are Digital X-Rays Safe?
Yes, digital X-rays have up to 90% less radiation compared to traditional X-rays and involve no chemicals, making them a lot safer for your health. For those concerned about radiation doses, we will perform X-rays as little as possible.
