Dental X-Rays

Dental X-Rays at a Top San Diego Dental Office

Will I need dental X-rays?

X-rays are essential diagnostic tools that provide valuable information not visible during a regular dental exam. Dentists and dental hygienists use this information to safely and accurately detect hidden dental abnormalities and create a comprehensive treatment plan. Without X-rays, problem areas may go undetected, costing you in time, money, and unnecessary discomfort.

What can dental X-rays detect?

  • Bone loss
  • Cancerous and non-cancerous tumors
  • Decay between the teeth
  • Developmental abnormalities
  • Hidden abscesses
  • Internal tooth and nerve damage
  • Poor tooth and root positions
  • Uncomfortable gum cysts

Advanced Digital Technology

Our office obtains digital X-rays with the sophisticated DEXIS digital X-ray system, which is a state-of-the-art imaging software that provides numerous benefits to the dental practitioner and the patient that traditional X-rays cannot. As there is no need for chemical processing, the DEXIS system is incredibly efficient, cutting development time into fractions of what is usually expected. Having a digital file of an X-ray also provides unparalleled ease amongst dental staff, allowing them to review and share results instantly through networked offices. Additionally, digital X-rays use less radiation yet produce a high quality image that can be compared to conventional radiography, reducing any dangers to the patient.
