Even if you don’t have any symptoms, there may be more going on with your oral health below the surface. X-rays can be used to generate radiographic images of areas the dentist is interested in viewing more in-depth.
Our specially trained team at Greenbelt Dental Associates takes every precaution when using our state of the art digital X-ray imaging technology. For 20 years we have been safely taking images for patients from Greenbelt, Beltsville, Lanham, Riverdale, Hyattsville, Glenn Dale, and the surrounding areas to get a better understanding of each person’s oral health and discuss potential treatment options.
X-ray beams are used to create a black and white image of your bones and teeth. Digital X-ray images are captured immediately, allowing the dentist to analyze them instantly and review the findings with you.
Our advanced technology at Greenbelt Dental Associates allows us to generate digital X-ray images quickly right in the office. We securely store the images electronically so we can more efficiently treat you.
When you are a new patient, the dentist may want to have digital X-ray images taken of your mouth to get a better idea of your present oral health status. This sets up a base level the dentist can reference later to better identify changes.
Though you might not notice anything unusual, digital X-ray images may catch an issue that is going on in your teeth or jaw. Early detection is helpful in treating problems and may result in your health being improved sooner and potentially more cost-effective.
