Advanced technology helps us provide quality dental care
At the office of Timothy Rothwell, we use digital X-rays to closely examine your teeth and supporting structures. This advanced diagnostic tool has changed the way that X-rays are taken and dental exams are performed by capture high-quality images of your mouth in a matter of seconds. Using these pictures, our dentist can provide you with a diagnosis that is more accurate and a treatment that is more effective and more comfortable.
Digital X-rays are used to diagnose a wide variety of dental problems, including:
- Tooth decay
- Improper root positioning
- Infection in the roots and nerves
- Bone loss
- Cysts and abscesses
- Developmental abnormalities
Dr. Tim will also use digital X-rays to plan your treatments, including oral surgery procedures, root canal treatment, implant post placement and more.
Digital X-rays make your experience faster, more comfortable and convenient by using a digital sensor to capture images, rather than radiographic film. Digital X-rays also make your imaging experience safer, as they produce significantly less radiation than traditional film X-rays. In fact, digital X-rays have been known to produce up to 90% less radiation than film imaging! They also do not require any toxic chemicals to develop the image. Instead, the captured image is immediately viewable on a nearby computer monitor. There are even different types of digital imaging available depending on your oral health needs and the information our dentist is seeking, ranging from simple bitewing X-rays to panoramic X-rays.
