Digital X-rays in Fort Lee, NJ & Surrounding Area
Digital X-rays are just one of the advanced diagnostic tools we use to provide patients with the best possible dental outcomes. Digital radiography has changed the way we take dental X-rays by making the process faster, more comfortable and more convenient than ever before. The way it works is that digital X-rays use a digital sensor to take images of your teeth. Traditional X-rays, on the other hand, use much more radiation and conventional film, which requires the use of chemicals to develop the images. Instead, digital X-rays can be instantly viewed on monitors right in our treatment room and allow the dentist to provide you with an efficient and accurate diagnoses. Digital radiography is used to identify and diagnose several types of dental problems, including:
- Decay in between teeth
- Developmental abnormalities
- Improper tooth root positioning
- Cysts and abscesses
- Fractures in existing fillings
- Infection in the tooth nerves
- Bone loss
In addition, digital dental X-rays are used to plan many kinds of dental treatments, such as oral surgery procedures, root canal treatment, dental implants, orthodontics and more.
