Before any procedure can even be considered, our team has to review the exact dental conditions of each patient. Digital dentistry involves different imaging techniques, the most commonly used one being xRays.
xRays are images that display the bone and teeth and reveal the exact location of dental issues. They also allow dentists to evaluate different types of risks. For example, an xRay can be used to see the distance between and infection and a nerve, allowing the dentist to decide if the patient needs only a filling or if the problem has the potential to infect the nerve and thus require a root canal.
XRays don’t have to be made into film slides that are placed against the light today. They can be taken and displayed on a computer screen, and taken again if necessary. Special software allows the dentist to move or zoom in the image as needed, allowing for easier view and a better evaluation of the patient’s problem.
