Even if you are not experiencing symptoms, it is possible that a problem is occurring in your mouth below the surface. Digital X-rays are used to obtain radiographic images so that our La Grange, KY dentist can have an in-depth view of your entire oral cavity.
Our team of professionals at Crestwood Dental Group is expertly trained in taking and delivering digital X-Rays. We take every available precaution to ensure your safety and to get the best results desired. Our La Grange, KY dentist and staff uses the best digital technology to gather the greatest, most precise view to best treat your oral health issues.
What is X-Ray imaging?
Digital X-Ray imaging utilizes X-Ray beams that capture instant images for our La Grange, KY dentist to review. These black and white images show us any problems beneath the surface that the naked eye can’t see. The instant result lets our team quickly diagnose dental problems so that we can take preventive measures immediately.
Digital X-Rays help us generate images in the office and are easily stored electronically for quick reference.
Why do I need X-Rays?
To establish a medical history
New patients and those who have been coming to our office for years, benefit from X-Rays. The images allow our team to evaluate your oral health and make it easy to find discrepancies. X-Rays establish a baseline for your treatment plan.
To uncover potential problems
To the naked eye, your oral health may appear to be in good order. However, sometimes the problem is below the gums. Digital X-Rays help us treat these problems through early detection.
To properly diagnose patients
Digital X-Rays are great tools for our La Grange, KY dentist and staff. We use these images to diagnose issues you are having or to catch the onset of an issue before it gets worse. Images show us tooth decay, bone infections, cavities, tumors, cysts, abscesses, and periodontal disease.
When should I have digital X-Rays taken?
Typically all new patients are recommended to have X-Rays taken as well as patients who haven’t had a set taken in a while. At Crestwood Dental Group, we believe the earlier we can detect a problem, the healthier your oral health will be. We’ll evaluate your medical history at each dental exam and determine if a new set of X-Rays are necessary for your ongoing oral health treatment plan.
