Our dental team at The Art of Dentistry is committed to utilizing the latest dental technology to take care of your smile. As part of this ongoing effort, we provide digital X-rays when you come in for your dental exam. Digital X-rays are an advanced imaging system that takes high-quality photos of your teeth, gums, and jaw. Digital X-rays are important because they allow our dentists to better understand your smile and form a proper diagnosis, which is key to helping our dental team offer you and your family personalized, effective treatments.
Dr. Williams can use digital radiography in Davison, Michigan, to detect:
- Tooth decay hidden inside of your tooth or too small to see with the unaided human eye
- Areas of tooth structure loss and bone loss
- Developmental abnormalities, such as misalignment of the bite
- Impacted third molars (wisdom teeth)
- Advanced periodontal disease
Digital X-rays can also be used to plan orthodontic and cosmetic treatments. There are many advantages to using digital X-rays over other imaging systems. They emit a significantly lower amount of radiation, making them safer for your smile and the environment. We can also view the images on our monitors almost immediately, which helps us in explaining the health of your smile to you. We would love to share more of these benefits with you, and we invite you to call us today to schedule a tour of our office. We hope to hear from you soon!
