Digital X-Rays

Here at East Oakville Dental, both Dr. Zajac and his associates feel it is of the utmost importance that our patients realize the benefits of our digital X-ray system. A digital X-ray allows for quick on screen reference to facilitate your understanding of any areas of concern with your oral health. As well, digital X-rays are much safer than normal X-rays.

Digital X-rays help in the diagnosis and treatment of many dental procedures. They illustrate bone height, bone defects, infection,
root involvement, tartar, tooth decay, Cancerous and non-cancerous tumours and more. Digital X-rays are also beneficial in determining if gum disease is progressing or if arrested.

Digital X-rays are scanned into our computer, allowing for the images of your teeth, supporting bone and gums to be large and crisp, stored in your file for future reference. Digital X-rays are faster, safer and environmentally friendly.

How often should dental x-rays be taken?

This depends on each patient’s needs and medical history. A full mouth series of digital x-rays is recommended for new patients.
A full series is usually good for three to five years. Bite-wing x-rays (top and bottom teeth biting together) are taken at recall visits and are recommended once a year to detect any new dental problems.

Detecting and treating dental problems at an early stage is very important. It can save time, money, unnecessary discomfort, tooth loss and quite possibly your life!

Please feel free to speak to Dr. Zajac or any one of our East Oakville Dental team members on how this amazing technology allows our team to bring patient care to a higher, safer and improved level.
