Here at Preston’s Dental, with the equipment to take digital x-rays, we are able to achieve clear, high resolution images instantly, making the diagnosis process more efficient and accurate. Besides the standard dental x-rays we also offer a larger full mouth OPG and side view x-rays. You can now have a full mouth scan with minimal radiation and with minimal discomfort done in under 30 seconds.
Radiographs detect much more than cavities. For example, radiographs may be needed to survey erupting teeth, diagnose bone diseases, evaluate the results of an injury, or plan orthodontic treatment. Radiographs allow us to diagnose and treat health conditions that cannot be detected during a clinical examination. If dental problems are found and treated early, dental care is more comfortable for your child and more affordable for you.
We recommend radiographs and examinations every six months for children with a high risk of tooth decay. On average, most dental professionals request radiographs approximately once a year for moderate risk children, and once every 2 years for low risk children.
