When you visit Hart Dental for a dental checkup, our dentists and team use digital x-rays to examine your oral health. Digital x-rays allow us to evaluate your dental structure and detect any developing issues. We invite you to make an appointment with Dr. Christopher Hart to learn more about the benefits of using digital radiography in Mitchell, South Dakota.
We recommend digital X-rays. Here’s why.
Digital x-rays are one of the advanced diagnostic tools we use to provide you with the best possible care. Digital radiography has changed the way we take dental x-rays by making the process faster, more comfortable, and more convenient than ever before. Digital x-rays use a digital sensor to take images of your teeth, unlike traditional x-rays that use film. Digital x-rays use significantly less radiation than conventional film x-rays and do not require the use of chemicals for developing the images. Our dentists can then instantly view the high-quality images on monitors right in the treatment room to provide you with efficient, accurate diagnoses and care.
Our team is able to use digital radiography to identify and diagnose several types of dental problems, such as:
- Decay in between teeth
- Developmental abnormalities
- Improper tooth root positioning
- Cysts and abscesses
- Fractures in existing fillings
- Infection in the tooth nerves
- Bone loss
We may also use digital dental x-rays to plan certain kinds of dental treatment, such as oral surgery procedures, root canal treatment, dental implants, and more. To learn more about digital radiography and how we use x-rays at our office, we welcome you to call or visit us soon.
