Dr. Angela Ishak uses digital X-rays to examine your mouth and plan your care. Digital radiography has changed the way dental X-rays are taken and used by making the imaging process faster, more comfortable and more convenient. These X-rays use a digital sensor to capture images of your teeth, which removes the need for toxic chemicals to develop the images and instead transfers them directly to a nearby monitor so that our dentist can view your teeth and supporting structures in detail. Digital X-rays also produce up to 90% less radiation than film radiography, making your X-ray process safer as well.
Digital X-rays are used to diagnose a number of oral health problems, including:
- Tooth decay
- Tooth root positioning and related problems
- Developmental abnormalities
- Cysts, abscesses and tumors
- Fractures in the teeth or in existing fillings
- Tooth infection
- Bone loss
Our dentist may use the captured images to plan a variety of procedures to improve your oral health, including oral surgery procedures, root canal treatment, dental implant procedures and orthodontic care. X-rays are also used to help you learn about and understand your oral health and treatment options so you can make informed decisions about your care.
