Dr. Shuichi Yamaguchi, our knowledgeable dentist, knows how important it is to understand every aspect of your smile in order to create a dental treatment plan that is personalized to your exact needs and goals. To fully understand your smile, our office is equipped with digital X-rays. Also known as digital radiography, digital X-rays are a high-tech imaging system that captures high-quality images of your smile and are considered an important diagnostic tool at 19th Avenue Dental. We will take a series of digital X-rays during your initial visit to our office and yearly as necessary. We may also suggest digital radiography in Everett, Washington, if we believe your smile may be damaged.
Our dental team may suggest digital X-rays to detect:
- Tooth decay hidden to the natural eye
- Bone fractures or bone loss in your jaw
- Crooked or misaligned bites
- Developmental abnormalities
- Impacted wisdom teeth
- Cysts or abscesses
- TMJ disorders
When compared to other forms of dental radiography, digital X-rays have many advantages. Digital X-rays use less radiation, making them safer for you and the environment. The photos we take are also immediately available on our operatory monitors, allowing us to show you what is going on in your smile as we strive to help you understand your dental health. Finally, digital X-rays allow us to provide a quick, detailed diagnosis. To learn more about these benefits, we invite you to contact us today. We look forward to helping you schedule your appointment and answering your questions.
