Digital X-rays

Having a dental x-ray performed is part of our standard procedure here at South Hill Comprehensive Dentistry. When we use dental x-rays, we can pinpoint areas of tooth decay and bone loss and are especially an aid for many of our treatments. However, as digital technology becomes more advanced, so do we. We’ve incorporated digital methods of gathering your x-rays so we can diagnose and treat your teeth faster than ever before. For us, having the latest technology gives us many advances for our community, and we can perform the x-rays you need for your treatments.

How Digital X-Rays Give Us The Big Picture

Our traditional ways of performing x-rays are slowly fading away, and instead of plastic holders and normal film, electronic sensors are now being utilized to our advantage. Digital processing has become a quicker way for us to diagnose serious conditions that, when not observed, can do serious harm to your teeth and gums. By implementing digital x-rays and removing the need for development times, dark rooms, and uncomfortable plastic mouth holders, we can easily discuss your treatment options and be able to diagnose faster than ever before.

So, what makes digital x-rays so vital to our practice? For our patients, we focus on providing you with a unique, comprehensive experience that validates your concerns, informs you about your conditions, and plans out long-term treatment plans that help keep your teeth and gums healthy. With the help of digital x-rays, our office is able to:
