Low Radiation Digital X-Rays
Dentist Woodbine, MD
At Teitler Family Dental care, we not only take your oral health seriously but also your overall health. While x-rays use a minimal amount of radiation and considered to be safe, even small amounts of radiation can add up over time. This is why we provide advanced digital x-rays in place of traditional dental x-rays that expose you to higher levels of radiation. Digital X-rays require significantly lower levels of radiation.
In order to provide you with exceptional preventive care, x-rays may be required at some routine check ups to help provide our team with detailed information regarding the health of your smile. Digital X-rays also help us determine the condition of crowns, bridges, fillings, and root canals. If x-rays are required during your visit we will gently take digital x-rays. After your digital X-rays are completed you will be able to instantly review the X-rays on the computer screen with your dentist.
One of the many great advantages of digital x-rays is that they provide us with a higher density and contrast quality image of your tooth. The higher quality of X-ray allows our team to easily detect infection, gum disease, and tooth decay. The digital technology also allows your dentist to magnify and highlight problem areas of your tooth.
