When it comes to imaging, Dr. John, and his team at DHC carefully examine when and especially which digital radiographs are taken. Radiographs allow us to see what the naked eye cannot see – such as cavities, bone health, as well as the roots and nerves of the teeth. Of course, we also use them to find and diagnose tumors, cysts or lesions or work with major injuries. The best part is you do not have to leave your chair!
Digital Radiographs allow us to precisely see your internal anatomical structures of your mouth and putting it right on up on the screen for you to review with your dentist makes it easy to plan your next steps! We use a small sensor that uses up to 90% less radiation than traditional x-rays, so it really is minimal! Of course, doing this exam is an important part of your dental care plan - as it aids us in diagnosing and maintaining your smile! We also save these images as part of your dental history, another reason this is the easy choice for us!
At DHC, we take pride in offering the latest technology allowing us to simplify the way we care for your teeth with better dental checks ups and treatment plans! We look forward to your next check-up and examination, if you have questions about our digital imaging process, please reach out to your local DHC office!
