Taking dental x-rays or radiographs is essential for diagnosing dental disease and concerns. These radiographs show teeth, bones and soft tissue to help Dr. Monroe determine if there are caries or hidden dental problems such as bone loss that cannot be seen when looking into a mouth. Taking dental x-rays can also help catch dental disease early to prevent pain and expensive dental treatment.
Our digital dental x-rays use very small amounts of radiation and exposure to this small amount of radiation is safe. Digital x-rays allow us to quickly take the x-ray and see the image immediately to provide a quick diagnosis. This significantly decreases discomfort in order to make your experience less stressful.
