Digital Dental X-Rays

At Whites Road Dental Care, we use digital dental x-rays to detect, diagnosis and monitor oral health conditions and diseases.

In our office, we use digital x-ray sensors to produce detailed computer images of your teeth and gums.  These sensors are super comfortable for patients to tolerate, and provide us with high resolution images for early detection of oral health concerns. The interpretation of these X-rays allows Dr. Bunt  to safely and accurately detect hidden abnormalities.

How often dental X-rays (radiographs) should be taken depends on the patient`s individual health needs. It is important to recognize that just as each patient is different from the next, so should the scheduling of X-ray exams be individualized for each patient. Your medical and dental history will be reviewed and your mouth examined before a decision is made to take X-rays of your teeth.

The schedule for needing x-rays at recall visits varies according to your age, risk for disease and signs and symptoms. Recent films may be needed to detect new cavities, or to determine the status of gum disease or for evaluation of growth and development. Children may need X-rays more often than adults. This is because their teeth and jaws are still developing and because their teeth are more likely to be affected by tooth decay than those of adults.
