Shenandoah Family Dentistry uses state-of-the-art, pain-free digital X-rays to better capture images of your jaw and teeth. These X-rays allow us to diagnose any oral issues swiftly and more efficiently compared to using film-based X-rays. What this means for you is fewer visits to our office and more accurate results.
Pain-Free Digital X-Rays
With our digital X-ray equipment, you can say goodbye to bitewings and hello to pain-free digital X-rays. There is no need to lie down, either. All you need to do is sit still while the camera rotates around your jaw, taking pictures and piecing together a precise 3D image.
There are other benefits to our pain-free digital X-rays as well:
- Reduced radiation
- Greater accuracy
- Instant imaging
Digital X-rays take less than 30 seconds to complete, exposing you to far less radiation than traditional X-rays. The 3D model of your jaw that these X-rays generate allows us to view your X-ray from any angle, including zooming in and viewing cross-sections of your jaw with ease.
Since the X-rays are digital, they are available almost instantaneously to be viewed on a computer monitor so we can easily show them to you during your visit.
Maximum Accuracy As Well As Security
The dentists at Shenandoah Family Dentistry can use digital X-rays to help identify your tooth and jaw issues with excellent accuracy. Some items we can detect are:
- Tooth decay
- Developmental abnormalities
- Improper root positioning
- Cysts and abscesses
- Issues with fillings
- Bone loss
Digital imaging also means that your X-rays are safe on a secure server. We can also send them to other medical professionals with more security than standard X-rays, keeping your medical information completely private.
