A Modern Way to Assess Your Smile
Advanced diagnostic tools are essential for accurate dental care that meets your needs. At Star Smiles Dentistry, X-rays allow us to view your teeth and supporting structures even below the gumline, and digital X-rays make the process faster, more comfortable and more convenient. Unlike traditional X-rays that use film, digital X-rays use a digital sensor to take images of your mouth. These images can then be viewed instantly by both you and our dentist!
Digital X-rays allow us to see:
- Decay between teeth
- Developmental abnormalities
- Improper tooth root positioning
- Cysts and abscesses
- Fractures in existing fillings
- Infection in tooth nerves
- Bone loss
A Safer Alternative
Many people are concerned about the radiation exposure from X-rays. Traditional X-rays already use a low amount of radiation, and digital X-rays use even less radiation than that! There are also no chemicals involved in developing the images, making digital X-rays the safer choice for both your health and the environment.
