One of the most commonly used technologies in dental offices is the X-ray. At Cariboo Dental Clinic in Williams Lake, we use digital imaging technology to produce picture-perfect, clear radiographs of your teeth and surrounding tissue. All the dentists at our clinic follow strict radiography guidelines and only take digital radiographs when absolutely necessary. We ensure that your exposure time for dental radiographs is minimal. Exposure time for digital radiographs is about 50 percent less when compared to traditional radiographs.
Clearer Pictures mean Early Detection!
Radiographs allow us to detect dental caries or cavities between teeth which are not visible during a dental examination. Digital X-rays also help us to determine bone level, analyze bone health, examine the roots and nerves of teeth, diagnose lesions such as cysts or tumors, as well as assess damage resulting from trauma. With digital X-rays, we get a better view of your teeth and surrounding structures as we view the image on a computer monitor, instead of holding up a 35mm film up to the light. Digital imaging allows us to store patient images, and enables us to easily transfer them to specialists or insurance companies.
