Digital X Rays Services – Courtice – Oshawa
At King Town Dental, Dr. Bedi is dedicated to preventing gum disease, conserving healthy teeth, and creating beautiful smiles. That is why she is committed to having advanced technology which can evaluate the overall health of your mouth. Digital X-rays are the most effective way of doing this and can detect any problems in your teeth, roots, gums, and bone by creating detailed images of the area.
Digital X-ray services help in the diagnosis and treatment of many dental procedures. They illustrate bone height, bone defects, infection, root involvement, tartar, tooth decay and more. Digital X-rays are also beneficial in determining if gum disease is progressing or arrested.
At our location in Courtice, near Oshawa, we conduct many types of digital X-rays:
Cone Beam Computed Tomography: A three-dimensional rendering of the jaw and face area. It offers precision and improved diagnosis for planning treatment.
Panoramic: A wide angle shot of the entire mouth.
Bitewing: This X-ray image displays the crowns of the upper and lower teeth.
Periapical: Shows the entirety of every tooth from crown to root.
Occlusal: Portrays the arch of the upper and lower teeth and how they fit together.
A digital X-ray allows for quick on screen reference to facilitate your understanding of any areas of concern. Addtionally, digital X-rays allow for minimal exposure time with 80% less radiation than normal X-rays. Digital X-rays are scanned into our computer, allowing for the images of your teeth, supporting bone, and gums to be stored in your file for future reference. Digital X-rays are faster, safer, and environmentally friendly.
Here at Kings Town Dental we realize the benefits for patients when utilizing the digital X-ray system.
