We Use Digital X-Rays For Better Accuracy And Convenience

When you see us for a routine exam, or if you come to us following an injury to a tooth, we need to assess the situation and the state of your smile with detailed images. For optimal accuracy and convenience, we have chosen the digital route! In today’s blog, your Prairie Village, KS, dentist talks about the benefits of our digital x-rays for planning and implementing dental treatments!

When You Need a Dental Exam

We want to see you and your family every six months for a dental exam. The visit is an opportunity for our team to take a close look at your teeth, gums, roots, and the interior of the mouth with detail and precision. Our team can then diagnose common concerns like tooth decay, infection, gingivitis, and even gum disease. For adults, we also screen for oral cancer and watch for signs of TMJ disorder and bruxism (teeth grinding). For kids, we want to make sure that primary teeth are erupting and falling out as they should, ensuring better alignment.

Our Digital X-Rays

To make a diagnosis with optimal precision, we use a digital x-ray. The system uses 90% less radiation, and we don’t need you to wear uncomfortable bitewings. The images will be high-definition and available chairside instantly, so we can walk you through the diagnosis and you can spend less time in the chair. No more waiting for them to develop in harsh chemicals! The images can be enlarged so we can make a diagnosis with better accuracy, and we can easily transmit these to other offices or specialists as needed.

What Happens Next?

Following the exam, we can discuss your treatment options and create a plan to address the concerns and preserve the stability of your smile. For example, we can place filling or crown placement to address cavities, root canals to treat infection, or even create custom oral appliances to offer a noninvasive solution to issues like TMJ disorder or bruxism. In the same visit, we will also clean the teeth to remove all plaque and tartar buildup, which helps fight bad breath and teeth stains, and also limits the risk of issues like cavities and gum disease too. If you have any questions about how we treat these concerns with better precision and accuracy, or if you want to schedule a checkup with our team, then contact our team today to learn more.
