During dental cleanings and exams, we use digital X-rays for a comprehensive look at your smile. Using an electronic sensor instead of traditional X-ray film, we are able to capture digital images of your teeth onto our computer. Because these images can be instantly viewed and enlarged, our talented team is able to detect and diagnose problematic dental conditions more easily. Digital dental X-rays in Oceanside, California are also safer than traditional X-rays; digital X-rays reduce radiation by over 80% on average. They are an essential tool in preventive, diagnostic dental care. Some of the conditions we look for include:

  • Hidden decay or damage
  • Abscesses or cysts
  • Bone loss
  • Cancerous and non-cancerous tumors
  • Developmental abnormalities
  • Poor tooth and root positions
  • Problems inside the tooth or below the gumline

We provide a full series of digital X-rays during your first visit to our office. This is done to ensure we understand your teeth and have a vision for your smile and necessary treatments. The need for further X-rays will be determined at subsequent dental check-ups. Each person will be different based upon your individual dental needs.
