Part of your cleaning and prevention plan at BR Dental Care involves digital X-rays in Baton Rouge, Louisiana. Dr. Suadi uses the latest X-ray technology, known as digital radiography, which uses an electronic sensor to capture and store digital images of your teeth. You can benefit from this technology when you call our dentist to schedule an appointment.
The process of taking digital radiography is quicker and more comfortable than the process of taking X-ray film, and it reduces radiation exposure by a significant amount. Because the digital images can be viewed instantly, our dental hygienist will be able to detect and diagnose any abnormalities and problems at a faster and more efficient rate.
It is important to have X-rays taken of your teeth to prevent discomfort, pain, and permanent damage to your mouth. Even though digital radiography is significantly safer than traditional X-ray film, we still take all of the necessary precautions to prevent unnecessary exposure to radiation. Your health and safety are of the utmost importance to us.
The frequency and need for X-rays are based on: medical and dental history, a dental exam, signs and symptoms, your age, and risk of disease. Although a full X-ray of your top and bottom teeth are taken once or twice a year, new X-rays may be needed if any dental problems arise. If you are experiencing any difficulties or pain, we highly recommend that you arrange an appointment with our dentists promptly.
