Digital X-Rays

Dental X-rays are an important and necessary part of a thorough dental examination. They can expose hidden tooth decay; reveal a tooth abscess, cyst or tumor; show impacted or extra teeth; and also help determine the condition of dental fillings, tooth crowns, dental bridges and root canals. Dental X-rays can also reveal bone loss from periodontal gum disease, locate tarter buildup, find foreign bodies within the gum or bone, and see if there is enough bone for the placement of dental implants.

Dr. Irwin has specifically chosen to utilize Digital Dental X-rays for her patients because:

  • There is an 80-90% reduction in radiation when compared to traditional film X-rays.
  • Results are nearly instantaneous and able to be viewed immediately.
  • There is the ability to use color-contrast in the image.
  • Images can be stored electronically providing instant retrieval and can be sent electronically to your insurance company or specialist when necessary.
  • There is no need for the use of chemicals normally used in the traditional developing process.
