digital-x-rayWhat are digital X-rays?

Digital X-rays are images that allow our experienced dentist, Dr. Bhoompalli, to detect and diagnose dental problems that are not readily visible with the naked eye. Digital radiography uses significantly less radiation than traditional X-rays – up to 90% less! Digital X-rays also provide us with instant high-quality, expandable images that we use to identify dental problems. With digital radiography, the process for detecting and diagnosing dental conditions is faster and more accurate than ever before. We are pleased to utilize digital X-rays in Duluth, Georgia to provide you with the best possible dental care.

Do I need digital X-rays?

When you visit Johns Creek Family Dentistry, we will take digital X-rays of your mouth as part of your regular dental exam. Dr. Bhoompalli may also use digital radiography if you visit us because of dental pain or injury. Using digital X-rays, we can diagnose dental problems such as:

  • Tooth decay between teeth
  • Cysts, abscesses, and tumors
  • Bone loss
  • Infection in the tooth nerve
  • Developmental abnormalities
  • Fractures in existing dental fillings

In addition, we may use digital radiography to plan certain dental treatments, such as root canal therapy, dental implants, and tooth extraction.
