Detailed examination with the naked eye by a dental professional can identify many oral issues that require attention. However, digital X-rays use modern technology to spot concerns that are not otherwise visible.
Your dentist may find hidden tooth decay, bone infections, developmental abnormalities, gum disease, and cancerous and non-cancerous tumors on a digital X-ray.
In comparison to traditional film-based X-rays, there are many advantages to using the more advanced digital X-ray technology:
A dentist can carry out a digital X-ray during a routine dental visit. There are no special preparations, and they are very safe. If they discover abnormalities, several X-rays may be taken throughout treatment to ensure it is working.
Children may need to have more digital X-rays taken than adults because their teeth, gums, and jaws are still growing. If there are any problems identified as this growth is occurring, it may be necessary to evaluate their oral development on an ongoing basis.
