Knowing what is happening below your gums enables the Smile Dynamics in East Wahroonga team to make an exact diagnosis and develop the most suitable treatment plan.
Gum disease, oral cancer, cysts, abscesses, and the early development of tooth decay as well as a loss in jawbone density due to periodontal disease are some of the conditions able to be detected through digital x-rays, which may not be seen during routine examinations until they have reached an advanced stage.
Digital x-rays are efficient and emit up to 80% less radiation than traditional x-rays, which also require film and chemical processing. They can be stored electronically and emailed to specialists to whom you may be referred for more complex procedures.
Digital x-rays also help us monitor your treatment progress. How often you will need to have updated digital x-rays will be dependent on your personal needs and diagnosis of your current oral health.
