Digital Dental X-Rays in Everett, WA
Detecting What the Naked Eye Can’t See in Your Smile
Digital x-rays are used in the dental profession to help detect various types of dental disease, many of which cannot be seen by the naked eye during routine exams. The type of digital x-rays we use at All Smiles Northwest utilize electronic sensors instead of conventional x-ray film. This reduces the amount of radiation by approximately 80-90% compared to traditional dental x-rays, which already had a low exposure rate for patients’ safety. Providing digital dental x-rays in our Everett, WA dental office is just one of the many ways we go above and beyond to make our patients feel safe and comfortable. Our family-friendly dental practice believes in the importance of preventative care and education. Routine cleanings, exams, and dental x-rays are your best defense against cavities, gum disease, and illnesses. If you’re due for x-rays, please contact us today to schedule an appointment at your earliest convenience.
What Are the Benefits of Utilizing Digital Dental X-Rays?
Besides the obvious benefit of less exposure to radiation, digital x-rays offer numerous advantages to both our dentists and our patients. No longer do we have to wait for a staff member to process the x-rays using a chemical solution. Digital x-rays offer a more environmentally-friendly option and allow us to view the images immediately without any delay. Because we’re able to view the digital images on a computer screen, we’re also able to see things with more clarity than ever before. We can enhance the images on our screen for more accurate diagnoses. We can also make electronic copies or prints of your digital x-rays to help process your dental insurance claims faster. Now that’s something to smile about!
What Types of Conditions Do Dental X-Rays Diagnose?
The earlier you get dental issues diagnosed, the sooner you can begin effective treatment at All Smiles Northwest. Digital dental x-rays can help diagnose all of the following oral conditions and more:
- Bone loss
- Various types of oral cancer
- Decay between your teeth
- Root decay
- Problems inside a tooth and below the gum line
- Other oral abnormalities
The Comfort and Safety of Digital Dental X-Rays
Although digital dental x-rays produce a significantly lower level of radiation compared to conventional x-rays, our dentists still take precautions for our patients’ comfort and safety. We only perform x-rays when they’re necessary, and we use lead apron shields to protect the rest of the patient’s body from exposure. Because digital x-rays take less time to capture images, this results in less time spent at our office and a more comfortable patient experience overall. You no longer have to dread visiting the dentist for routine exams, cleanings, and x-rays. All Smiles Northwest is dedicated to making your visit pleasant and stress-free.
