DIGITAL X-RAYS

EXTRAORAL X-RAYS

Extraoral x-rays  are perfect for gaggers and people with small mouths!  Regular check up films are taken without the sensor being placed in your mouth. Other types of extraoral x-rays focus mainly on the jaw and skull. These x-rays show impacted teeth, monitor growth & development of your jaws, and identify any potential problems with the  temporomandibular joint (TMJ).

INTRAORAL X-RAYS

Intraoral digital x-rays are used to help us find cavities, check for infections, and diagnose gum disease.

The digital format has several advantages:

1- Digital x-rays use much less radiation than conventional film x-rays.

2- Digital x-rays allow use various image enhancers to improve diagnostic abilities.

3- Because the images are shown on a big screen,  you can visualize and understand your dental issues.  Patient education is paramount at Dayspring Dental!
