Part of delivering high-quality dental care is ensuring your comfort and safety. Many of our Temple, TX patients are concerned about the amount of radiation to which they're exposed. For this reason, we’ve invested in digital x-rays that reduce your exposure by as much as 80 percent compared to film x-rays.
Digital x-rays produce highly detailed images of the inside of your teeth and below your gum line where many problems start to develop. You may not feel any discomfort yet, but cavities and gum disease can damage your oral health if we don’t detect them early. When we do, we can provide conservative dental treatment long before you develop any pain.
We also use digital x-rays as an educational tool by sharing them with you on your chairside monitor. Our dentists will point out areas of concern to help you understand why you need treatment and how it will benefit your oral health. Seeing is believing, and that’s especially true in dentistry.
Since we store digital x-rays in your patient record, they’re easy to access to monitor ongoing conditions. We can also easily send them to your insurance company or specialists with your permission.
