Celina Dentist: The Benefits of Digital X-rays

One of the best ways of protecting your teeth and gums is with preventive dentistry. By catching issues such as tooth decay and gum disease early, treatment can be prescribed before these dental problems become worse. Digital x-rays allow your Celina family dentist, Dr. Angela Ganjoor, to look beneath the gums and inside the teeth, to maximize dental health.

A Safer Option

Dr. Ganjoor and our team at Celina Family Dentistry strive to give our patients comfortable dental care. Digital x-rays offer a safe method of examining teeth and bone. Older x-ray machines give off high levels of radiation, while the digital models emit about 90% less radiation. Traditional, dental x-rays also require the use of harsh chemicals to develop the images. Digital x-rays provide instant images of a patient’s teeth and gums, allowing Dr. Ganjoor to show patients trouble spots and discuss a treatment plan right away. The images can also be enlarged and enhanced, to allow Dr. Ganjoor to observe details in your teeth that weren’t visible with traditional x-ray machines.

Preventive Care

Digital x-rays allow Dr. Ganjoor to spot the earliest warning signs of various dental problems, including diseases and certain cancers. Early detection is the first step to overcoming these issues. Some of the potential disorders Dr. Ganjoor can watch for with digital x-rays include, but aren’t limited to:

  • Tooth decay
  • Gum disease
  • Bone loss
  • Abscesses
  • Certain oral cancers
  • Lymphoma
  • Paget’s disease.

Attending regular checkups is essential for preventive care. In addition, always maintain proper dental habits. Brush your teeth twice a day, and floss at least once. Try to eat a balanced diet, and avoid foods and drinks high in sugars and other starches. These simple steps will reduce your chances of developing serious dental issues.
