Digital X-Rays in Frisco, TX

WHAT ARE DIGITAL X-RAYS?

We typically take digital x-rays during annual exams to provide a more thorough view of your teeth and gums, allowing board-certified dentist Dr. Mohit Sharda to diagnose problems that aren't easily visible and to understand more about the health of the interior of your teeth, jaw, and gums. There are several dental and oral problems that can be diagnosed with digital x-rays, such as tooth decay, cavities, abscesses, cysts, impactions, and bone loss. When these conditions are identified in their early stages, they can be treated more efficiently with simpler, more effective treatment options instead of major surgery. Some of the types of x-rays housed in our facility include the NOMAD™ and cone beam 3D imaging.

WHO CAN BENEFIT FROM DIGITAL X-RAYS?

Typically, x-rays are taken as part of an annual dental exam. They may be used to aid in preventive measures or when you are experiencing dental issues of any kind and need a diagnosis. Even though digital x-rays emit significantly less radiation compared to film x-rays, Zensmiles likes to minimize each patient's exposure. While they are generally safe for all patients, patients who are breastfeeding or pregnant should talk to Dr. Sharda at the start of their exam so special cautionary steps can be taken.

What to Expect

Usually done at the beginning of a dental cleaning or exam, digital x-rays usually take around 5 – 10 minutes to complete. Most patients get a series of x-rays to show all areas of the mouth. After they are taken, they will be uploaded to be viewed digitally by you and Dr. Sharda during your exam. He will determine if there are any abnormalities and then discuss your treatment options.

CONTEMPORARY, ADVANCED TECHNOLOGY

X-rays are an advanced technology that can help diagnose hidden oral conditions. As part of an annual dental exam, they can give Dr. Sharda a better understanding of your oral health and help him to catch any hidden problems so that he can correct them before they can become painful or harmful. For improved oral health, contact our team in Frisco, TX to schedule your dental exam with digital imaging.
