We are pleased to offer digital radiography in Brownsburg, Indiana! Digital radiography is a new, modern way to take X-ray images of your mouth. Rather than using film like traditional dental X-rays, digital X-rays use a digital sensor to capture images of your teeth, bone, and surrounding structures. Digital X-rays are a great diagnostic tool used by our skilled dentist to detect and diagnose dental problems that require treatment. Using digital dental X-rays, Dr. Todd Eder can identify several types of conditions, including the following:
- Bone loss
- Decay between teeth
- Cysts and abscesses
- Tumors (cancerous and non-cancerous)
- Infection in the tooth nerve
- Developmental abnormalities
Digital radiography is quick, comfortable, and safe. The process for taking digital X-rays is faster and more comfortable than that for traditional film X-rays, and digital radiography provides us with instant, high-quality images. Digital X-rays utilize up to 90% less radiation than traditional X-rays. In addition to detecting dental problems, we can also use digital X-rays to analyze damage and to plan certain kinds of dental treatment, such as dental implants, root canal therapy, oral surgery, tooth extraction, and more. We welcome you to contact us today at Brownsburg Family Dental Care to learn more about the benefits and uses of digital radiography. We look forward to speaking with you!
