Dental radiography is an essential component of preventive and restorative dentistry. When you come in for your initial appointment, our dentist will be keen to obtain dental x-rays, as this helps to show in-depth insights into your oral health. While traditional radiography works just fine, we know that some patients have concerns regarding exposure to radiation. That’s why we have invested in digital radiography.
Dental Arts of Plymouth offers digital x-rays to patients of all ages, regardless of the dental procedure. Digital dental x-rays are a safe and efficient way of getting images of your teeth, gums, and overall oral cavity. If you’ve always been scared or skeptical of conventional x-rays, now is your chance to get the imaging you need without feeling anxious.
Depending on the patient’s needs, our dentist in Plymouth, NH, may require intraoral or extra-oral dental x-rays. Extra-oral radiographs are taken outside of the oral cavity. For the imaging process, the dentist uses a digital sensor that captures images that are then projected onto a monitor or computer screen.
Dental x-rays are used in the detection of cavities, monitoring of bone health and tooth development, and to keep an eye on jaw growth. They can also aid in the diagnosis of temporomandibular joint disorders, and impacted teeth, to name a few.
Dental radiography is essential in orthodontic treatments and restorative dentistry (dentures, implants, etc.) as it allows the dentist to determine the state of the underlying tissues.
Here at Dental Arts of Plymouth, we believe in the numerous benefits offered by digital x-rays, including:
