Dental X-rays are a vital tool used by dental professionals to evaluate your oral health. At Vincent C. Mayher, DMD, MAGD, we use digital X-ray technology to help us understand which care your smile needs. Digital X-rays reveal the early signs of dental problems so that we can provide minimally invasive treatment.

Types of intraoral X-rays include periapical, bitewing, and occlusal X-rays. Periapical X-rays display an image of the entire tooth, including the ends of the roots. Bitewing X-rays show the upper portion of the tooth from jawbone to crown. Occlusal X-rays reveal the full tooth structure, showing both the upper and lower jaw.

By using digital radiography, we can make the process of taking X-rays faster, more convenient and more comfortable than in the past. A digital sensor takes images of your smile, eliminating the need for the film that traditional X-rays use. The level of radiation emitted by digital X-rays is also significantly lower than that of conventional film X-rays, and no chemicals are needed to develop the images. By using digital X-rays, we can plan a variety of dental procedures, including dental implant placement and root canal treatment.

Digital X-Rays at Vincent C. Mayher, DMD, MAGD equip our team with a thorough knowledge of your smile so that we can provide the best possible care. If you have any questions about the use of digital X-rays in Haddonfield, New Jersey, or would like to schedule an appointment with one of our skilled dentists, please call 856-429-0404 today. Dr. Vincent Mayher, Dr. Jessica Meier, and Dr. Salvatore Pera are always ready to help you with your smile!
