At least once each year, you should have a dental X-ray taken to help check your oral health. At Steele Dentistry, Dr. Kate Steele and Dr. Lisa Schaffer use digital X-rays to make this procedure safe and simple for your convenience. For more information about digital radiography in Denver, Colorado, or to set up an appointment with our caring dentists, call our office at 303-278-3353.
Digital radiography is one of the biggest advances in modern dental technology. The process is faster, more comfortable, and easier than ever, and also improves patient and technician safety. Like your digital cameras, digital X-rays use a sensor to take images rather than film. This means that images are available instantly and require no chemicals to develop. Digital X-rays also use less radiation to achieve the same results.
Our dentists use X-rays to help identify and diagnose a variety of dental issues, including:
- Tooth decay
- Atypical dental development
- Improper root position
- Abscesses and cysts
- Fractures in fillings
- Infected tooth areas
- Bone loss
In addition, we may use X-rays in planning a variety of treatments, from normal fillings to veneer and crown placement. If you would like to learn more about how our dentists in Denver and Stapleton, Colorado, use digital radiography, please contact our office today!
