Dental x-rays capture in-depth, detailed images of a patient’s teeth and mouth that the naked eye cannot see. These x-rays are performed by our team of trained experts and they are typically considered to be one of the most common diagnostic tools in dentistry. These images allow Dr. Mamrick to see a much clearer and more detailed view of our patient’s teeth, gums, and mouth which can reveal signs of infection, disease, trauma, bone loss, and many other issues.
The Benefits of Digital X-Rays
At Ron Mamrick DDS, our goal is to provide the best, most accurate dental care possible for our patients. That’s why we are proud to offer the latest high-performing technology, such as digital x-rays, to better help treat our patients for all of their oral health care needs.
Depending on your discussion with Dr. Mamrick regarding your unique dental situation and treatment plan, our team will typically perform digital x-rays on our patients periodically. Once these x-rays are taken, they are available instantly on our monitors and are stored electronically within your records for Dr. Mamrick and the rest of our team to view.
These images aid Dr. Mamrick in helping to detect and treat a number of oral health issues that may not be seen at first glance or without the use of x-rays at all. Compared to traditional x-rays, digital x-rays provide much clearer images and emit about 90% less radiation!
The most common type of digital x-rays that our practice uses are intraoral x-rays. A safe sensor is placed inside the mouth of the patient, which allows for a very highly-detailed image of the patient’s teeth, gums, and mouth. This allows Dr. Mamrick to be able to view and detect a number of dental issues such as:
- Locating cavities
- Examining the roots and bones of the teeth and mouth
- View the overall health of the mouth, teeth, and gums
At Ron Mamrick DDS, our goal is to provide the best dental care to our patients. Digital x-rays are an amazing technology that helps our team to accurately and efficiently detect, diagnose, and treat a variety of oral health issues. It is important to receive periodical dental x-rays at your appointment with us so our team can provide you with the best care!
