Do I really need x-rays?
There are many dental problems and defects that simply cannot be seen during a visual exam. At Glendale View Dental, we use digital radiography (digital x-rays) to detect and identify problems when they are still small and easy to fix. Without x-rays, decay can advance quickly and reach the point where our treatment options are limited.
Using the information obtained from digital radiography (x-rays), Dr. Baha can make recommendations as to what therapies and treatments will be most appropriate for maintaining your oral health. With digital imaging, we can also easily identify abnormalities within your bone. This information helps us in planning for more complex treatments like extractions and root canals.
We believe that it’s easier for you to understand your dental needs when you are completely informed about what the problem is and what’s involved in the treatment. The details obtained through 3-D imaging help us provide you with the information you need to make appropriate decisions regarding your oral health.
Your complete comfort and safety are our highest priorities. At Glendale View Dental, we’re pleased to offer digital x-rays that are efficient, healthy, and better for the environment. It’s estimated that your exposure to digital x-rays is about 90% less than traditional film x-rays.
