3D Digital X-Rays

iSmile dentists utilize 3D digital X-rays to capture high-quality images of your teeth and supporting structures. These images are used to examine your teeth closely and to plan and perform your procedures. In addition, digital X-rays are entirely safe for use, producing 80-90% less radiation than traditional film radiography. To learn more about 3D digital X-rays at iSmile and make your appointment today.

Digital X-rays are one of the advanced diagnostic tools we use to provide you with the best possible care. Digital radiography has changed how we take dental X-rays by making the process faster, more comfortable, and more convenient than ever before. Digital X-rays use a digital sensor to take images of your teeth, unlike traditional X-rays that use film. Digital X-rays use significantly less radiation than conventional film X-rays and require no chemicals for development. Our dentists can instantly view the high-quality images on monitors right in the treatment room to provide you with efficient, accurate diagnoses and care. Our team can use digital radiography to identify and diagnose several types of dental problems, such as:

  • Decay in between teeth
  • Developmental abnormalities
  • Improper tooth root positioning
  • Cysts and abscesses
  • Fractures in existing fillings
  • Tumors
  • Infection in the tooth nerves
  • Bone loss

Digital dental X-rays help plan many kinds of dental treatment, such as oral surgery procedures, root canal treatment, dental implants, orthodontics, and more. We welcome you to call or visit us soon to learn more about digital radiography and how we use X-rays at our office.

Can a dentist conduct a diagnosis without an X-ray?2021-09-16T11:03:50-09:00

X-rays help see more than just the eye. For earlier and through diagnosis, X-rays are crucial. For example, sometimes cavities form in between your teeth; rather than waiting until they are too large, X-rays can help spot them early. In addition, X-rays help provide an image of the roots of your teeth; without an X-ray, your dental team cannot access your teeth’ roots.

All X-rays involve radiation, but digital X-rays have a great reduction compared to film X-rays. The radiation is so low these X-rays are considered safe for children and adults. Digital radiation is reduced by 80% compared to traditional film. If you have any concerns regarding digital X-rays, speak with our dental team today.
