Dr. Bruggeman will take pictures of the teeth, bones, and soft tissues around your teeth to help find problems with the teeth, mouth, and jaw typically when you have a dental exam. Simply looking into the mouth to determine issues is not enough. X-ray pictures can show cavities, hidden dental structures (such as wisdom teeth), and bone loss that cannot be seen during a visual examination. Dental X-rays may also be done as follow-up after dental treatments.
Digital x-rays are quickly becoming adopted by a large percentage of the dental industry as opposed to the old X-Ray machines. A digital x-ray allows the dentist to take an image of the tooth or teeth and put it into an imaging program almost immediately. Within this imaging program, there are a number of tools that will allow the dentist to take a very close look at the teeth and surrounding structures with amazing accuracy providing more in-depth understanding to potential issues.
- Digital x-ray also provides nearly 80% less radiation than a standard x-ray
- Amazing accuracy
