We believe that properly diagnosing your smile plays a vital role in helping us provide the most appropriate treatments to improve your overall oral health. To ensure your smile is well taken care of, we are excited to utilize the latest digital radiography at Dr. Skigen’s dental office. Digital radiography is more commonly called digital X-rays. The main goal of digital dental X-rays in Jacksonville, Florida is to detect abnormalities or decay that are invisible to the human eye. Generally, our experienced dentist uses digital X-rays to find:
- Hidden tooth decay below your tooth enamel
- Decay between teeth
- Cysts or abscesses near your tooth roots
- Abnormal or cancerous tumors
- Bite irregularities
- Developmental abnormalities
There are many benefits in using digital X-rays when compared to other types of dental radiography. Digital X-rays use less radiation, and are therefore safer for your smile. The images produced are of a higher quality and are also readily available for review. This allows us to educate you about your smile and help you understand why we suggest certain treatments. We want you to feel confident in your dental care as you make informed choices about your treatment plan. To learn more about the benefits of digital X-rays, we invite you to call our friendly dental team today. We look forward to answering your questions and passing on our love of dentistry.
