Technology

Smile on Us is proud to offer the latest dental technology to provide our patients with the best treatment options available. At our Hollywood FL office, we use digital x-rays to detect dental problems that lie beneath the surface. Using the information digital x-rays provides, we are then able to provide our patients with an accurate treatment plan that fits their individual needs.

Compared to traditional low exposure dental x-rays, digital x-rays reduce radiation by 80-90%. This allows Smile on Us to gain accurate and valuable information and provide patients with preventative treatment.

What Can X-Rays Reveal?

Without the power of digital x-rays, many dental abnormalities and health issues go untreated. Digital x-rays in Hollywood FL can reveal:

  • Cysts or abscesses
  • Cancerous and non-cancerous tumors
  • Bone loss
  • Decay between the teeth
  • The position of poor teeth and roots
  • Problems within a tooth or below the gum line
  • Developmental abnormalities

By detecting problems such as these, patients can save time, money, unnecessary treatment and discomfort, and most importantly, their smiles!

How Safe Are Digital X-Rays?

Digital dental x-rays are far more safe than traditional x-rays. This is because of the low amount of radiation digital x-rays produce. Additionally, digital x-rays can quickly produce an image making the experience comfortable and fast. For these reasons, digital dental x-rays are proven to be safe for patients to provide preventative treatment and detect dental problems.

However, responsible dental practices will still only use digital x-rays sparingly and as needed by each individual patient. For most new patients, a full mouth series of digital x-rays is usually necessary and can last between three to five years while x-rays of the patient’s bite are typically done during routine dental check-ups.
