Digital X-Rays

Advanced Digital X-Rays at Alta Vista Dental Care

At Alta Vista Dental Care, we leverage the latest in dental technology with digital radiography, or digital X-rays, to provide superior dental care. This advanced method allows us to efficiently detect and address dental issues that are not visible during a standard oral exam.

The Advantages of Digital Over Film X-Rays

Enhanced Safety and Efficiency: Digital X-rays offer significant benefits compared to traditional film X-rays:

Reduced Radiation Exposure

Digital X-rays significantly reduce radiation exposure – up to 90% less than film X-rays. This makes them a safer option, adding an extra layer of protection to your dental care.

Instant Results

With digital X-rays, the images are captured using an electronic sensor and are instantly available for review. This immediate availability allows for quick retakes if necessary and a seamless transition to your oral exam.

Improved Diagnostic Capability

Digital images can be enlarged and enhanced, providing our dental team with a better view and aiding in more accurate diagnosis.

Why are Digital X-Rays Essential?

A Critical Diagnostic Tool: Digital X-rays are indispensable for a comprehensive dental evaluation. They help in identifying various issues that might otherwise remain undetected:

  • Abscesses, cysts, or tumors
  • Bone loss
  • Decay between teeth
  • Developmental abnormalities
  • Misaligned tooth and root positions
  • Internal tooth problems and below the gum line issues

Early detection of these conditions through digital X-rays can save you from future discomfort, extensive treatments, and can be crucial for maintaining overall oral health.

Safety of Dental X-Rays

Minimizing Exposure, Maximizing Care: While digital X-rays emit very low levels of radiation, we still take every precaution to minimize your exposure. This includes using lead apron shields and limiting X-rays to those that are absolutely necessary for your dental health.

Personalized X-Ray Scheduling

Tailored to Your Dental Needs: The frequency of digital X-rays is determined based on your individual dental health needs. For new patients, we typically recommend a full series of X-rays, followed by necessary X-rays during routine cleanings to monitor any new developments. Your dentist will customize this schedule based on your medical history, symptoms, and dental health risk factors.

At Alta Vista Dental Care, our use of digital X-rays is part of our commitment to providing you with the most advanced and safe dental care available. Whether you’re a new or returning patient, digital X-rays play a vital role in maintaining your oral health.
