Digital radiography is a new, modern technology used to take dental X-rays. Rather than using X-ray film to capture the images like traditional X-rays, digital X-rays use a digital sensor. This allows our experienced dentist, Dr. Laura B. Ousley, to immediately review your X-rays. Digital radiography is a valuable tool in preventing and diagnosing dental problems. Using digital X-rays, Dr. Laura B. Ousley can detect and diagnose several types of dental conditions, including:
- Tooth decay between teeth
- Developmental abnormalities
- Cysts, abscesses, and tumors
- Bone loss
- Infection in the tooth nerve
- Fractures in existing dental fillings
Because we can see dental problems before they are visible to the naked eye, we can treat the problems before they become more serious. This can save you time, pain, and costs that would be involved in more extensive dental treatment. We can also use digital X-rays to plan certain types of dental treatment, such as crowns, bridges, and fillings. Digital radiography in Guthrie and Oklahoma City, Oklahoma helps us provide you with more comfortable and efficient dental care. The process for taking digital X-rays is faster and more comfortable than that of traditional X-rays, and digital radiography provides instant, high-quality images.
