Providing a proper diagnosis is the first step to receiving the ideal dental treatments and services you need. To more fully understand your smile and guarantee a proper diagnosis, our dentists at Bristol Dental Clinic are pleased to utilize digital X-rays. Digital X-rays, also known as digital radiography, are an advanced imaging system that allows us to take high-quality images of your teeth, gums, and jaw. We can use digital X-rays to detect:
- Hidden tooth decay not visible to the eye
- Developmental abnormalities
- Impacted wisdom teeth
- Abscesses or cysts
- Bone loss in your jaw
- Effects of advanced gum disease
Digital X-rays offer many advantages over traditional imaging systems. Digital X-rays are easy to take and produce an image quickly for review. They are also considered safer for your smile and the environment. We are also able to educate you more about what is occurring with your smile, allowing you to see what we see during a dental exam. We generally suggest utilizing digital radiography in Bristol, Florida, at least once a year and as suggested by Drs. Laban and Monica Bontrager. If you would like to learn more about the many benefits of digital X-rays, we welcome you to contact our dental office today. Our team is knowledgeable and eager to help you feel confident in the care you receive at our office. We look forward to hearing from you and meeting your family.
