Digital x-rays provide us with accurate diagnostic information while reducing radiation exposure by up to 80 percent. The implementation of digital dental x-rays into our San Juan dental practice gives us valuable information at our fingertips. We can compare images over time to monitor changes to your oral health.
Patients are sometimes concerned about dental x-rays and have questions about their necessity or safety. Victor D. Woodlief, DMD, takes only the x-rays necessary to accurately diagnose dental conditions that are not visible with the naked eye alone.
Regular dental x-rays help us to identify conditions that put your teeth at risk. Dental decay rarely causes pain until it is well advanced. Regular x-rays allow us to treat your condition when it is less complex, potentially saving your tooth.
