Digital X Rays

Your prevention and cleaning plan includes taking dental X-rays in Plantsville, Connecticut. Dr. Thomas L. DeRienzo uses the latest dental X-ray technology, or digital imaging, at Plantsville Family Dental, which cuts radiation by 75%. By using an electronic sensor, the digital X-ray machine will both capture and store images of your teeth. We can show our patients their X-rays on a large screen as well as take intraoral pictures of the teeth and put them on screen. We invite you to contact our dental office today to learn more and to schedule your next appointment with our dentist.

Digital X-rays are one of the advanced diagnostic tools we use to provide you with the best possible care. Digital radiography has changed the way we take dental X-rays by making the process faster, more comfortable, and more convenient than ever before. Digital X-rays use a digital sensor to take images of your teeth, unlike traditional X-rays that use film. Digital X-rays use significantly less radiation than conventional film X-rays, and they require the use of no chemicals for developing the images. Our DMD can then instantly view the high-quality images on monitors right in the treatment room to provide you with efficient, accurate diagnoses and care. Our team is able to use digital radiography to identify and diagnose several types of dental problems, such as:

● Decay in between teeth● Developmental abnormalities● Improper tooth root positioning● Cysts and abscesses● Fractures in existing fillings● Tumors● Infection in the tooth nervesBone loss

We may also use digital dental X-rays to plan certain kinds of dental treatment, such as oral surgery procedures, root canal treatment, dental implants, and more. To learn more about digital radiography and how we use X-rays at our office, we welcome you to call or visit us soon.
