Digital X-Rays–Dental Office in Peoria, AZ
What Are Digital Dental X-rays?
Digital dental X-rays are one of the diagnostic tools we use at Mettler & Griego Family Dentistry. Rather than using traditional film X-rays, we use digital X-rays to detect and diagnose dental problems. With digital radiography, our experienced dentists can detect dental conditions such as:
- Bone loss
- Tooth decay between teeth
- Infection in the tooth nerve
- Developmental abnormalities
- Cysts, tumors, and abscesses
In addition to detecting dental problems, we can use digital dental X-rays in Peoria, Arizona to plan certain dental treatments, including root canal therapy, tooth extraction, TMJ treatment, dental implants, and more.
What Are the Advantages of Digital Dental X-rays?
Digital radiography is more comfortable than traditional film radiography. Digital X-rays provide Dr. Mettler and Dr. Griego with instant, high-resolution images that can easily be expanded for closer examination. Digital radiography utilizes significantly less radiation than traditional X-rays (approximately 90% less), so it is a safe choice for patients of all ages.
