During your regular checkups at Woodbury Dental Care, our dentists may request that the hygienist take X-rays of your teeth. These X-ray films are effective tools that help our dentists and dental team discover any potential oral problems and treat them before they turn into major issues. The decision to request X-rays is based on your individual dental history, risks, and symptoms. Dental X-rays may reveal:
- Abscesses or cysts
- Bone loss
- Cancerous and on-cancerous tumors
- Decay between the teeth
- Developmental abnormalities
- Poor tooth and root positions
- Problems inside a tooth or below the gum line
At Woodbury Dental Care, we utilize the latest in dental X-ray technology: digital radiography. Using an electronic sensor, the digital X-ray machine will capture and store accurate digital images of your teeth instantly. Digital X-rays are more comfortable, and emit less radiation than traditional X-rays.
We invite you to contact Woodbury Dental Care today to schedule your next checkup with our dentist. During your appointment, we can also give you more information on digital X-rays or any of the advanced dental technology that we utilize.
