X-rays can play a very important part in your treatment. Our dentist can use X-rays to locate problems with the development of your smile, decay between your teeth, issues with your tooth’s roots and a loss of bone in your jaw. They can also be used to find cysts, tumors or abscesses and even infections in your smile. We may even use X-rays during your regular visits to track any changes or developing problems in your teeth. They can also be used before such treatments as a root canal, Invisalign® aligners or for placing a filling. X-rays are also valuable tools in when preparing for dental implants.
At Kathy Cosmetic Dentistry, Dr. Kathy Daroee uses digital X-rays in Woodland Hills, California. Digital X-rays have a number of advantages over traditional X-rays. They expose you to much less radiation and can be instantly viewed by you and Dr. Daroee. They are easy to store and can be used to see how your smile has changed over time. They can also be easily sent to consulting dentists or to your insurance company, if they are needed to file your claim. They do not require chemicals to develop, making them the environmentally friendly choice. Call 818-347-1550 today to schedule an appointment.
