Why Dental X-Rays are a Keystone of Oral Health
Welcome to Miramar Smiles Dentistry, where your dental health is our top priority. Dental X-rays are a fundamental part of our dental diagnostic process. They allow us to detect issues that are not visible during a regular dental exam, providing critical information that helps us to care for your teeth effectively and efficiently.
Understanding Dental X-Rays
Dental X-rays are a form of imaging that uses low levels of radiation to capture images of the interior of your teeth and gums. This can help your dentist to identify problems such as cavities, tooth decay, and impacted teeth, even before they become visible or cause pain.
Our Advanced Digital X-Ray Technology
At Miramar Smiles Dentistry, we have invested in cutting-edge digital X-ray technology. Our digital X-rays reduce radiation exposure significantly compared to traditional film X-rays and provide clearer dental images, which are essential for an accurate diagnosis.
Comprehensive Dental X-Ray Services
We offer a variety of dental X-ray services to meet the needs of our patients:
- Bitewing X-Rays: Ideal for checking for cavities between the teeth.
- Periapical X-Rays: Focus on the entire tooth, from the crown to beyond the root.
- Panoramic X-Rays: Show a broad view of the jaws, teeth, sinuses, and nasal area.
