Digital X-Rays

 Dr. Ingram's office uses the latest digital x-ray technology to make your office visit safer and more comfortable. Digital x-rays use an electronic sensor instead of x-ray film which reduce radiation by up to 90% from the already low exposure of traditional dental x-rays.

Even though digital x-rays produce a low level of radiation and are considered very safe, Dr. Ingram still takes necessary precautions to limit the patient’s exposure to radiation.  These precautions include only taking those x-rays that are necessary, and using lead apron shields to protect the body.

Digital x-rays are also able to be processed in a matter of seconds as opposed to waiting around for up to an hour for tradition x-rays to be developed. This allows you to spend more time consulting with Dr. Ingram instead of sitting in a waiting room.

Dental x-rays are essential, preventative, diagnostic tools that provide valuable information not visible during a regular dental exam.  Dentists and dental hygienists use this information to safely and accurately detect hidden dental abnormalities and complete an accurate treatment plan.  Dental x-rays may reveal:

  • Abscesses or cysts.
  • Bone loss.
  • Cancerous and non-cancerous tumors.
  • Decay between the teeth.
  • Developmental abnormalities.
  • Poor tooth and root positions.
  • Problems inside a tooth or below the gum line.

Detecting and treating dental problems at an early stage may save you time, money, unnecessary discomfort, and your teeth!
