Recap of Digital X-Ray Information
Offering superior resolution with less radiation exposure, the digital radiograph x-ray at Turner Dental Care is an excellent new way to help diagnose possible oral problems. The digital radiograph not only emits half the amount of radiation associated with traditional x-rays, but is also much less time consuming. Using a sensor that is placed in your mouth in the correct position, the pictures are taken and immediately sent to our computer. Dr. Turner can then review the information with you right from the computer screen.
How do I know I need an X-ray?
The frequency and need for X-rays are based on medical and dental history, a dental exam, signs and symptoms, your age, and risk of disease. Although bitewing X-rays of your top and bottom teeth are taken once or twice a year, new X-rays may be needed if any dental problems arise. If you are experiencing any difficulties or pain, we highly recommend that you arrange an appointment with us promptly. Think of us as your “emergency dentist near me.”
