Prevention is crucial when it comes to taking care of your oral health, and digital x-rays enable Dr. Pagonis to see below the surface of the teeth. We include digital x-rays as part of routine dental visits to enable Dr. Pagonis to see things that might not be visible without technological assistance. The tiniest bit of tooth decay might not be visible in a visual examination, but when viewed with an x-ray, we can treat it with a minimally invasive filling.
Digital x-rays can also discover other abnormalities in your mouth, helping to ensure you get treatment earlier rather than later.
Digital x-rays are safer than their traditional counterparts, emitting far less radiation. They are safe for most people, but if you know or suspect you are pregnant, be sure to mention that to us ahead of time.
