Dr. Layth Ghanim and our team are committed to providing our patients with the most effective and up-to-date dental technology. We often utilize digital radiography in the detection and treatment planning phases to gain a clear, accurate image of your oral health. With a thorough understanding of your dental needs, we can provide you with customized treatment that targets your individual needs.
The reason why we needs x-rays are to help us diagnose and detect cavities that we can not see with our own eyes. Usually x-rays are taken every 12-18 months to check if anything has changed. In our practice we utilize the most advanced technology when it comes to radiography. Our system uses close to nothing in radiation to the point where we no longer leave the room and we use a point-to-shoot system that goes directly into the computer in within seconds.
Digital radiography is faster, safer, and more accurate than traditional film x-rays. It utilizes digital sensors to produce high-quality images of every angle of your smile, which can be viewed immediately on monitors in the exam room. Our team can use the images as a reference when explaining your oral health and treatment options. Digital radiography uses significantly less radiation than traditional x-rays, making it much safer for patient use.
Our dentist and team may utilize digital radiography to diagnose issues such as:
- Cavities between teeth
- Infection in the dental pulp
- Loss of bone
- Abscesses & cysts
- Abnormalities in development
- Fractured fillings
Digital radiography is highly beneficial in planning dental implant placement, oral surgery procedures, and other services. For more information about the benefits of digital radiography in Arlington, Virginia, we invite you to contact Arlington Dental Excellence at 703-525-0157 today.
