Did you know that digital x-rays emit 80% less radiation than the traditional x-rays many dental clinics used in the past? Not only do digital x-rays offer a clearer, more precise view of the teeth and jaw but they also offer a safer alternative for oral imaging. Our Lynn Valley orthodontic and dental clinic also uses intraoral cameras to capture digital images of even the most hard-to-reach areas of your mouth so we can accurately make a 360-degree assessment of what’s going on in your mouth.
There are many benefits to using digital x-rays and imaging technology, including:
- We can get a clear and detailed look at your teeth, gums, and jaw to catch imperfections early and avoid costly dental treatments later on.
- Digital impressions can be used to design and produce custom-fitted trays for Invisalign treatments without the need for messy, uncomfortable moulding agents.
- Our dental professionals can use digital x-rays and imaging technology to visibly scan for early signs of oral cancer to catch potential symptoms before it spreads.
