It is important to take preventive steps as part of a dental health care routine, and that includes having dental X-rays.
This is a good way to spot any issues. At Route 14 Dentistry, we use digital radiography, the most advanced technology in X-rays. These work by using electronic sensors to take the picture and store it. The whole thing is a lot quicker than traditional film X-rays and less discomfort is involved!
The speed is quicker because the pictures can be seen right away by the dental hygienist. This means being exposed to less radiation and also having any problems spotted quicker, diagnosed quicker and fixed sooner. You can feel confident that we still have your welfare in mind. Even with the higher safety in the digital method, we still are cautious and you are only exposed for as long as needed.
Dr. Moon will usually take X-rays of the bottom and top teeth one or two times per year. X-rays can diagnose issues before they are visible with the naked eye. The frequency will depend on symptoms, age, your dental and medical history or the issue of potential disease. If you have any dental concerns, call us today. We can offer digital X-rays and an exam with our highly competent dentist.
