Dental X-Rays Corvallis, OR
The Latest in Advanced, Digital Radiography
The key to maintaining great dental health and overall health and well-being is early detection of potential problems. That’s why at Timberhill Dental, we’ll use the latest digital x-ray technologies.
Our digital x-rays allow us to see things that just can’t be seen with the naked eye or with traditional radiographic x-rays. Dental x-rays are the best way to ensure early detection of decay and other dental health problems.
They can even save you money in the long run. For example, by identifying hard-to-detect cavities early, you can have them filled before they become bigger cavities, and possibly avoid a root canal or other more invasive procedures further down the road.
Make X-Rays Part of Your Dental Health Plan
You probably don’t need x-rays every time you visit the dentist. Timberhill Dental generally recommends that most patients have x-rays taken every 12-18 months. By having x-rays taken regularly, we’ll be able to see changes in your tooth structure that will help us to provide you with the outstanding dental care we’re known for.
We may recommend more frequent x-rays if you:
- Have a history of cavities, gum disease, or abscesses in your gums or jaw
- Are still waiting for all your permanent, adult teeth to settle into place
- Need to make sure there’s room for your wisdom teeth
- Are considering dentures, braces, implants or other dental procedures
At your next checkup, ask if it’s time for your next set of x-rays.
Did You Know?
While most people think of x-rays as a way to look for cavities, they can also help me identify cysts, benign or cancerous tumors, and the location of teeth that haven’t erupted. Of course, x-rays are also invaluable for helping me to detect decay, especially between teeth.
Digital x-rays really are one of the most versatile and useful diagnostics we use to help patients.
Advantages of Digital X-Rays
Traditional x-rays use analog technology, including a piece of metal that acts like photographic film. Developing traditional x-rays takes time and requires a higher dose of radiation.
At Timberhill Dental, we’re always looking to use the best diagnostic technologies to help our patients. And digital x-rays are truly the best choice. Their advantages include:
• Very sensitive digital sensors that require the use of significantly less radiation
• Instant viewing! No waiting for films to develop
• Sharper digital images show more detail than traditional x-ray films
• Digital radiography doesn’t require the use of toxic chemicals, so it’s the environmentally friendly choice!
Best of all, digital x-rays let us show you what we see, in real-time. We’ve installed screens right next to our dental chairs so you can see your x-rays and ask questions.
With Timberhill Dental’s help, you’ll:
• Develop a better understanding of any dental problems you’re facing
• Be more informed on the advantages of different treatment options
• Take an active role in deciding on your treatment plan
