Dr. Rachelle Boudreau, Dr. Vincent Benedetti and our team are committed to providing high-quality dental care that is safe and effective. Our team at Illuminate Dentistry utilizes digital X-rays as one of our most useful diagnostic tools.
What Is the Difference Between Digital and Traditional X-Rays?
One of the benefits of digital X-rays is the low level of radiation that is used. Unlike traditional X-rays that use film, chemicals and higher levels of radiation, the digital X-ray uses a digital sensor to take images of your teeth safely and quickly, exposing you to less radiation. Because the process is digital, our dentists and team can immediately view the high-quality images of your teeth and create a treatment plan that caters to your unique needs.
What Can a Digital X-Ray Show?
Digital X-rays are useful in providing our team with a complete image of your teeth and supporting structures. With this diagnostic tool we can check your smile for the following problems:
- Decay between the teeth
- Developmental abnormalities
- Poor tooth root positioning
- Cysts and abscesses
- Fractures in dental fillings
- Infections in the nerves of the teeth
- Bone loss
Our team can use the results of your X-ray to plan oral surgery, a root canal treatment, dental implants and orthodontic treatments.
