Digital Radiography

Knowing exactly what is happening inside your tooth and below your gums enables the team at Essential Dental to make an exact diagnosis and develop the most suitable treatment plan to your care. Digital x-rays are an important step in the care available at Essential Dental. Through the use of digital x-rays, we are able to detect a host of ailments that are often otherwise invisible during routine examination. The following conditions are an example of what can be seen through the use of digital x-rays.

  • Tooth decay
  • Abscesses (tooth infection)
  • Gum disease
  • Oral cancer
  • Cysts

Digital x-rays are efficient and emit up to 80% less radiation than traditional x-rays. They can be stored electronically and emailed to specialists to whom you may be referred for more complex treatment procedures.

Digital x-rays also help us monitor your treatment progress. Essential Dental will be guided by your personal needs and diagnosis of your current health when considering how often you will need to have updated digital x-rays.
