Our dentists can make use of digital bite wing X-rays to examine both sets of your teeth. Digital bitewing X-rays are taken using a scanner placed inside your mouth and are used to locate cavities, damaged dental work, or to look for lost bone mass in the jaw. These types of X-rays are also useful for examining the roots of your teeth for plaque and tartar buildup. Because of this advanced technology, the dentists can get a detailed view of your teeth in order to diagnose any problems and plan the appropriate course of treatment.
Digital X-ray technology can also be used for what are known as Periapical or PA X-rays. These X-rays are used when you are experiencing a specific problem with a tooth, or a particular area of your mouth, such as a cavity or a toothache. While PA X-rays focus on one area, they are used to give the dentists a very detailed view of that area.
