Digital X-rays are a common but advanced tool for diagnostic and examination purposes. Digital radiography has many advantages over traditional radiography, including faster processing and more comfortable and convenient techniques. Digital X-rays are produced through a digital sensor that takes images of your teeth. There is no film at all like with traditional X-rays, so there is no need for harmful chemicals or waiting to develop the images. The radiation exposure is also significantly lower than that of traditional X-rays, so you can rest easy in the dental chair knowing that you are safe and protected.

Digital X-rays produce high-quality images that we can view and show you on monitors right in the treatment room. Dr. Rojas can use these images to identify and diagnose many dental problems, including:

  • Decay between teeth
  • Developmental abnormalities
  • Improper tooth root positioning
  • Cysts and abscesses
  • Fractures in existing fillings
  • Tumors
  • Infection in the tooth nerves
  • Bone loss

Digital X-rays can help our team plan oral surgery procedures, treatment for rool canal infections, dental implant procedures, orthodontic treatment and other dental treatments. Call to schedule your appointment with our team today!
