Digital X-ray imaging is a state-of-the-art imaging technology that allows dentists to view your teeth and oral structures with sharper, more detailed images than any other type of X-ray. Concerned Dental uses digital imaging techniques at all of our New York City Area dental offices. Digital imaging reduces exposure time by more than 50% as compared to traditional radiographs. State-of-the-art digital imaging is even faster, safer and clearer than conventional radiographs, making them the preferred type of imaging test.
Our dentists at Concerned Dental follow careful guidelines as to when radiographs (X-rays) should be taken. X-rays are a valuable diagnostic tool, giving us the ability to view internal structures of the mouth that are not visible in an examination. They enable us to determine the existence of cavities in the teeth, measure bone level and assess the health of the bone. We can also use radiographs to examine the dental pulp and roots of the teeth, inspect and evaluate cysts or tumors in the mouth as well as calculate the extent of any damage that has occurred due to trauma.
The digital X-ray procedure is similar to any regular dental X-rays. You can expect the following during your digital X-ray exam at Concerned Dental:
