When Dr. Richard Papp, Dr. Tiffany Jamison-Rand, or Dr. Ruby Truong examine your mouth, they will use digital X-rays to capture high-quality images of your oral structures. Digital X-rays are one of several advanced diagnostic tools we use in order to provide you and your family with more comfortable and precise care.

Digital X-rays changed the way that we take dental X-rays. In the past, dental radiography was time-consuming and required protective gear and caustic materials to capture and develop images. Now, dental radiography can be captured nearly instantaneously using digital sensors. This reduces your radiation exposure by up to 90 percent, and the captured images can be displayed almost immediately on a nearby monitor. These high-quality images make it easy for us to provide you with efficient, accurate diagnoses and precise, comfortable care.

Digital X-rays are used to diagnose and plan treatments for a wide range of dental problems, including:

  • Tooth decay, especially between the teeth
  • Developmental abnormalities
  • Improper root positioning
  • Cysts, abscesses and tumors
  • Fractures in the teeth or in existing fillings
  • Bone loss
  • Infection in the tooth nerves

Digital X-rays are commonly used to plan treatments, especially for oral surgical procedures such as root canal therapy and implant placement.
