Not all oral health concerns can be seen by the naked eye. Oral X-Rays help us identify hidden tooth decay, cysts, abscesses, bone loss, or impacted teeth. At our office we require X-Rays for every new patient, and follow up every 6-18 months, depending on individual patient needs. At Stillwater Dental your comfort and oral health is our #1 concern. Many severe dental problems can be avoided when minor issues are diagnosed and treated early. Frequent X-rays help our team identify hidden dental issues that can’t be seen on the surface. Our access to digital X-rays makes your experience with us more convenient, comfortable, and environmentally friendly.
Digital Vs Traditional X-Rays
Digital X-Rays produce up to 80% less radiation than traditional X-Rays. Patients are more comfortable during a Digital X-Ray, given the smaller sensor placed in their mouths. The images are ready in as little as three seconds, and the dentist has the capability to enlarge the images; leading to bigger, clearer images. Digital X-rays also eliminate the need for film, reducing the environmental impact. Further, due to their quick development time, digital X-Rays make processing insurance claims faster!
