Your Lincoln, NE dentist uses digital x-rays to identify, monitor, and diagnose your teeth and gum's health issues. When you need digital x-rays, you can rely on Korte Family Dentistry to provide the highest quality x-ray experience.
At Korte Family Dentistry, we use the most advanced dental technology available. This includes our x-ray machines. Because our practice is dedicated to providing you with the safest and most convenient treatment options available, we utilize advanced digital X-ray technology in our office. Digital x-rays offer many advanced imaging options that are designed to save patient’s time, provide higher resolution dental images, and protect patients from more radiation than traditional x-ray technology. In fact, digital x-rays produce 80% less radiation than traditional x-rays.
WHAT DO DIGITAL DENTAL X-RAYS SHOW?
Dental x-rays are like a window into the teeth and gums. They can show all kinds of things that your Lincoln, Nebraska dentist needs in order to come up with the appropriate treatment plan for your needs. Some things that digital dental x-rays show include:
- bone health or bone decay
- tooth abscesses
- foreign objects stuck in the teeth or gums
- presence of abnormalities
- teeth unable to break through the gum line
- bone fractures and breaks
- the general condition of the teeth and gums
Digital x-ray technology is far more advanced than traditional x-ray technology, offering your dentist a better look at the underlying issues affecting your teeth and gums.
DOES EVERY DENTIST USE DIGITAL X-RAYS?
Unfortunately, no. Digital x-ray machinery is cost-prohibitive. That means that very few dentists are able to afford the machinery to provide digital x-rays to their patients. When a traditional x-ray machine in a dentist’s office is working just fine, there’s also very little motivation for that office to invest in a digital x-ray machine. However, at Dr. Korte’s Family Dentistry practice in Lincoln, NE, we think the safety of patients should be to priority. That’s why we invested in digital x-ray equipment for our dental patients.
RADIATION FROM DENTAL X-RAYS
Many people are wary about having dental x-rays taken. Fears of radiation exposure are founded on dangers to other health areas. Digital x-ray equipment exposes patients to a whopping 80% less radiation than standard x-rays. At Korte Family Dentistry, we go above and beyond to limit radiation exposure through this advanced dental x-ray equipment and other precautions.
THE IMPORTANCE OF DENTAL X-RAYS
Dental x-rays are a vital component of the dentist’s diagnosis and treatment decisions. With dental x-rays, the dentist can tell whether there is an infection if bone loss is occurring, and other issues. Without the use of dental x-rays, the dentist would be confined to whatever information the dentist can gather from a visual inspection of the mouth.
When you need dental x-rays, depend on Korte Family Dentistry to ensure your safety. With digital x-ray technology at Korte Family Dentistry, we make sure your safety is our number one priority.
