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, Dr. Kate Steele and Dr. Michelle Raleigh, can 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
  • Tumors
  • 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!
