Dental x-rays are an essential tool. They provide a beneath-the-surface view of your gums and teeth. Often x-rays are able to reveal hidden conditions that may not be visible during regular dental exams. This powerful diagnostic tool allows Dr. Hung to detect and treat any dental problems early on.
At our office, we offer the latest x-ray technology, commonly known as digital x-rays. Digital x-rays deliver high-quality images that are available instantaneously on a computer. When compared to traditional x-rays, digital x-rays produce far superior images and can be enhanced or enlarged for a more accurate and more detailed view. The images are available immediately and require no waiting for film to be developed. In addition, these x-rays conveniently allow Dr. Hung to give you a presentation of your oral condition right in your exam room. These images can also be easily sent to your insurance company or other healthcare providers. Most of all, digital x-rays are much safer, exposing you up to 90% less radiation than traditional x-rays.
The process is quite simple-a small electronic sensor gently positioned inside your mouth captures the images within seconds. The x-ray images are instantaneously sent to a computer where they can be accessed by the doctor and his staff. After a thorough view of the digital x-rays, Dr. Hung can begin to create any necessary treatment plans for a healthier smile.
