When one of our dentists examines your mouth, they see only part of the picture. That is because many dental problems start in places we can't see, like deep inside teeth or under the gums. We can't treat what we can't see, so we use dental x-rays that let us view these areas in great detail and allow us to diagnose problems before they grow and become complicated and costly to treat.
We care about your oral health, but we also care about your overall well-being. For this reason, we choose to use digital x-rays at PhD Dental that expose you to about 70 percent less radiation than older film x-rays.
Digital x-rays are also valuable because we can share them with you and you can see what we see. It's one thing to have a dentist tell you what's happening with your teeth and quite another for you to see it for yourself! When you do, you can immediately understand why we need to treat you and how it will benefit your oral health.
We store your x-rays safely on our secure in-house network so we can access them easily for reference or send to your insurance company as needed.
