Using digital radiography, the latest in dental X-ray technology, Dr. Howard Nguyen can improve your oral health and smile more efficiently and effectively than ever before. Digital X-rays are an invaluable tool that helps us more accurately detect and diagnose problems with oral health, including:
- Decay hiding in and between the teeth
- Abscesses and cysts
- Developmental abnormalities
- Incorrect tooth root positions
- Bone loss
- Fractures in teeth or existing fillings
Because digital X-rays require significantly less radiation than traditional film X-rays do, they are as safe as they are informative. Because digital X-rays use a digital sensor to capture images of your teeth and oral structures, no chemicals are needed to develop the image, and the photos can be viewed on a monitor immediately to provide more efficient and accurate diagnosis and care. As needed, digital X-rays can also be easily shared with other dentists, specialists or insurance companies.
We provide both bitewing digital X-rays and panoramic digital X-rays at Nguyen Dental Practice to get the full picture of your oral health. Digital X-rays can also be used to plan and perform a broad range of treatments, from oral surgery procedures to root canal treatment, dental implant placement, orthodontic care and more!
