Our dentists use digital imaging to examine patients quickly and safely. Traditional X-rays come with many drawbacks, such as long exposure times, the use of harsh chemicals, and difficulty in duplication. Digital X-rays avoid these issues altogether and provide a clearer image. Learn more about this more advanced type of imaging below or by calling Berdy Dental Group at 904-389-1376.
Digital dental X-rays are one of the many advanced diagnostic tools we use to provide our patients with the best possible care. Digital radiography has changed the way we take dental X-rays by making the process faster, more comfortable and more convenient than ever before.
Unlike traditional X-rays that use film, digital X-rays use a digital sensor to take detailed images of your teeth. Digital X-rays use significantly less radiation than conventional film X-rays and they do not require the use of chemicals for developing the images. Digital X-rays also allow our dentists to instantly view the high-quality images on monitors in the treatment room to provide you with efficient, accurate diagnoses and care. Berdy Dental Group relies on this digital radiography option to identify and diagnose several types of dental problems, such as:
- Decay in between teeth
- Developmental abnormalities
- Improper tooth root positioning
- Cysts and abscesses
- Fractures in existing fillings
- Infection in the tooth nerves
- Bone loss
We may also use digital X-rays to plan certain kinds of dental treatment, such as oral surgery procedures, root canal treatment, dental implants, and more.
