Digital X-Ray Q & A

What is a dental X-ray?

A dental X-ray is an image of your teeth, bones, and the surrounding areas that your dentist uses to detect problems with your:

  • Teeth
  • Mouth
  • Jaw

Digital X-rays use a digital sensor to instantly capture high-resolution images of your mouth, which your dentist can then view on monitors to efficiently assess your oral health. This allows them to diagnose any dental issues quickly.

Digital X-rays are also an effective educational tool. The dentists are able to show you your X-rays so that you can develop a better understanding of your teeth, jaw, and gums, which can help you to understand why it is so important to brush and floss your teeth daily.

What conditions are diagnosed with dental X-rays?

The dentists use digital dental X-rays to follow up after dental treatment and evaluate your overall oral health. Using the advanced digital radiography available at Couture Smiles Dental Group, Drs. Gordon, and Fahid and the team can identify dental problems and conditions such as:

  • Bone loss
  • Impacted teeth (especially wisdom teeth)
  • Tooth decay, even if it is hidden between teeth

  • Infection in the tooth nerves
  • Cracks in existing dental fillings
