Digital X-rays are used to detect and diagnose dental problems that may go undetected in a normal checkup conducted using only the naked eye. Digital X-rays hold several advantages over conventional film X-rays:
- Digital X-rays use 85% less radiation than conventional X-rays
- Digital radiography provides higher quality images in a shorter period of time
- Digital X-rays do not require the use of chemicals
Our talented dentist, Dr. Jeffrey Falduto, can use digital X-rays to identify dental problems such as bone loss, tooth decay between teeth, developmental abnormalities, cysts, abscesses, tumors, infection in the tooth nerve, and more. We also use digital radiography to plan dental treatments, including root canal therapy, TMJ/TMD treatment, and dental implants.
