Digital X Rays

Digital X-rays help dentists diagnose common problems, such as cavities, gum disease and some types of infections. In our office, we use digital radiography. This allows us to take X-rays using 50-70% less radiation than conventional X-rays. When combined with computer monitoring, digital X-ray technology allows us to enhance images for a clearer diagnosis.

They are an important way of detecting many injuries and diseases. Without an X-ray of the whole tooth and supporting bone and gum tissues, you and your care won’t have critical information that can detect infection and pathology.

The type of X-ray needed will depend greatly on the type of care the patient needs to receive. Here are some of the most common types of X-rays performed:


Provides a view of the entire tooth, from the crown to the bone that helps to support the tooth.


Provides a visual of both the lower and upper posterior teeth and it allows the dentist to know how these teeth touch one another and help to determine if the decay is present between the back teeth.


This X-ray is preferred by the dentist when a patient needs an orthodontic treatment or and implant placement. Since it provides a wide view of the jaws, teeth, nasal area, sinuses, and the joints of the jaw.


Provides a clear view of the floor of the mouth to show the bite of the upper or lower jaw. This kind of X-ray is mainly used for children’s tooth development to show the primary (baby) and permanent (adult) teeth.

Cone Beam Computerized Tomography

Provides a 3D-view in X-ray, and helps dentists to better gauge the spacing of teeth and adjacent structures.
