Dental Imaging Techniques
X-rays are typically taken at new patient visits and then at least once per year at one of your biannual exams to monitor for any changes in your oral health. In addition to digital x-rays at these appointments, our dentist may use several other dental imaging techniques, particularly if you present symptoms of decay, infection or some other problem.
At Springfield Complete Dentistry, we use digital x-rays because they are safer and more effective. They result in far less radiation exposure for our patients and because they're digital, the images are instantly available to view on the computer. As a result, our dentist can analyze the images and give you your results immediately. You'll never have to wait hours, days or weeks to find out what your x-rays showed.
Our dentist uses an intraoral camera at our Springfield, Virginia, office to take detailed images of your mouth's interior. With just the click of a button, our dentist can capture multiple, high-quality images at once. The intraoral camera features an ergonomic design that makes it not only easy to capture images from different angles, but also incredibly comfortable for the patient.
