Can Better Imaging Technology Lead To Better Dental Care?

When you brush and floss your teeth, you can take a moment to look your smile over. Are you seeing signs of oral health trouble? Are you noticing cosmetic problems with your teeth that you want to address? These informal checks can help you recognize when something is wrong, but they can fail to provide anything close to the meaningful review you receive during a routine dental checkup. Your Prairie Village, KS dentist can carefully study your oral health during these reviews, using considerable training and experience to identify issues you can fail to spot. To further aid in these exams, advanced imaging technology can provide a remarkably detailed view of your smile, and find problems that might have been undetectable during a visual review.

Using Digital X-Rays To Closely Examine Your Smile

Digital x-rays create remarkably detailed images of your oral structures that are easy to review. These images can help with the diagnosis of a problem, and the earlier detection of issues with tooth decay. They also provide you with a more thorough review of your oral health, as they can be easy to view and discuss. By using digital technology, your dentist is also able to produce useful images more quickly, meaning you have answers and insights sooner.

What Kind Of Problems Can Your Dentist Find During A Routine Appointment?

A routine dental appointment can lead to the identification of many different problems. Early detection can mean early treatment, which can offer many benefits. The early detection of tooth decay means treatment can be provided before more harm comes to your tooth. In addition to checking for issues with decay or gum disease, your dentist will look for any possible indicators of oral cancer – early detection of this potentially serious disease can have an important impact on your treatment.
