Our dentists and team may use digital X-rays to examine your teeth, mouth and smile. This diagnostic technology gives us a detailed image and better understanding of your oral health needs so that we can ensure you receive the care you need.

Digital X-rays revolutionized the way we capture and utilize diagnostic information. Unlike traditional film X-rays, a digital X-ray employs a small digital sensor to capture images of your teeth and supporting oral structures. This makes the imaging process faster, more convenient and more comfortable. Digital X-rays also use significantly less radiation than conventional film X-rays — in fact, they produce up to 90% less radiation, making them highly safe for use. There is also no waiting time, as the captured images can be instantly transmitted to a nearby monitor without the use of chemicals to develop photos.

Dr. Lisa Kirshenbaum and Dr. Thomas Shaw use digital X-rays to develop treatment plans for a wide range of dental issues and procedures, including oral surgeries, root canals and dental implants. X-rays also aid in diagnosing:

  • Bone loss
  • Cysts, abscesses and tumors
  • Developmental abnormalities
  • Fractures in teeth or in existing restorations, such as fillings or crowns
  • Improper tooth root positioning
  • Infection in the tooth nerves
  • Tooth decay, including decay between the teeth
