Our dentists and team at Family Dental of Lincoln utilize digital X-rays to help us examine your mouth more closely than visual inspection permits. Give us a call at 773-561-5106 to make your appointment and learn more about digital radiography in Chicago, Illinois.
Digital X-rays have revolutionized dental imaging and changed the way that dentists and other oral health professionals diagnose and treat dental problems. Digital radiography offers many benefits, including speed, accuracy and safety.
- Speed – Traditional film X-rays require a time-consuming development process. Digital X-rays capture and transmit images instantly, allowing our dentists to view highly detailed images of your teeth and supporting structures and provide you with a quick and accurate diagnosis.
- Accuracy – Digital X-rays produce high-resolution images that allow our dentists to see even the smallest details of your teeth and gums. This allows us to diagnose and treat developing problems earlier, before they can cause significant damage that requires more invasive care.
- Safety – Digital X-rays produce up to 90% less radiation than traditional film X-rays. In fact, you are exposed to less radiation by digital X-rays than you are in your day-to-day life by the sun. Digital X-rays are very safe for all patients, including pregnant women and children.
Digital X-rays are used to diagnose and treat a wide range of dental problems, including tooth decay, bone loss, infection, cysts, abscesses, tumors, fractures in the teeth and in fillings, developmental abnormalities and improper tooth root positioning. Our dentists may use your X-rays to plan oral surgery procedures, root canals, implant placement, orthodontic care and many other treatments to improve your oral health.
