What is a digital x-ray?
A digital x-ray is an x-ray that stores x-ray images in digital format..
Why do I need dental x-rays?
Dental professionals use x-rays to view aspects of your smile that will not be visible during a visual examination. X-rays give our dental team the ability to detect problems earlier than we would be able to with a simple visual examination. These problems include tooth decay, damage to the bones which support the teeth, and dental injuries, such as broken tooth roots.
What will my dental team see on my digital x-ray?
A digital x-ray is an important assessment tool for our dental team at Fort Malden Dentistry. By using digital x-rays, our knowledgeable team will be able to detect a wide variety of problems in your mouth, including early tooth decay, bone loss, problems below the gum line, cysts, abscesses, tumours, or impacted teeth.
How often will I need a digital x-ray?
Our dental team will advise you during your appointment if a digital x-ray is necessary. If an x-ray is recommended, it can be performed during this appointment and the images will be immediately available. This immediate result gives our dental team the information we need to provide you with the best treatment available.
