Here at Valley Endodontics Root Canal & Implant Dentistry we carefully determine when and which types of radiographs are taken. There are many guidelines that we follow. Radiographs allow us to see everything we cannot see with our own eyes. Radiographs enable us to detect cavities in between teeth, determine dimensions and analyze the health of your jaw bone. They allow us to examine the roots and nerves of teeth, diagnose lesions in the bone such as cysts or tumors, as well as assess damage when trauma occurs.
Dental radiographs are invaluable aids in diagnosing, treating, and maintaining dental health. Exposure time for dental radiographs is extremely minimal. Here at Valley Endodontics we utilizes state-of-the-art Digital Imaging Technologies within the office. With digital imaging, exposure time is about 90 percent less when compared to traditional film radiographs.
