At lookswoow, we use the latest technology, digital radiography to take dental x-rays. In this technique we use an electronic sensor instead of an ax-ray film that stores the digital image on a computer. Our dentist uses this image to view and enlarge instantly to detect the problems. This technique reduces the risk of exposure to radiation by 80-90%.
Dental x-rays provide valuable information that is not visible during a dental examination. Our dentists use this information to detect hidden dental problems more accurately which eventually helps in preparing an accurate treatment plan.
Dental x-rays may help dentists to reveal:
Abscesses or cysts
Cancerous and non-cancerous tumors
Decay between the teeth
Poor tooth and root positions.
Problems inside a tooth or below the gum line
Digital x-rays also help in detecting the problems at an early stage that can save you time and money.
We recommend a full mouth series of dental x-rays for new patients which is good for three to five years.
