Low-Radiation, Safe Imaging
Drs. Trinh Lee and Suzanna Lee use digital radiography to enhance their ability to screen for disease conditions that are not visible during dental exams. Because digital dental x-rays use extremely low levels of radiation, they are even safer than traditional radiographs.
Digital Radiographs Enhance Patient Care
When are dental x-rays necessary? Dr. Trinh and Dr. Suzanna use them to diagnose conditions like:
- Bone loss
- Periodontal abscesses
- Tooth decay (between the teeth or deep into the enamel)
- Cysts, tumors or pathology
- TMJ conditions
- Eruption patterns and tooth development
There are several different types of x-rays we use at our Bay Area cosmetic dental office; each one serves a different purpose. Typically, new patients to Allure Dental Center will have a full mouth series or panorex taken during the first comprehensive exam. A set of bitewing x-rays is updated every year after to check for changes or developments in the teeth and bone.
Don’t let tooth decay creep up on you unexpectedly. Our digital x-rays make it quicker to diagnose conditions so that the treatment is simpler and more affordable. You will love how fast the x-rays are and the visible images right on the monitor to see for yourself!
