Our dentists at Smith & Stahr, P.S.C. utilize digital X-ray technology in Lexington, Kentucky. Using digital X-rays, Drs. Smith, Stahr, and Smith can analyze dental conditions that cannot be viewed with the naked eye.

Digital X-rays are one of the advanced diagnostic tools used to provide you with the best possible care. Digital radiography makes the process of acquiring X-rays more comfortable and convenient than ever before. Digital X-rays use a sensor to take images of your teeth, unlike traditional X-ray systems that use film. Digital X-rays are preferable to traditional X-rays because they deliver images quickly and use significantly lower levels of radiation. Our dentists can then instantly view the high-quality images in the treatment room and provide you with accurate diagnoses. Our team is able to use digital radiography to identify and diagnose several types of dental problems, such as:

  • Decay between teeth
  • Developmental abnormalities
  • Improper tooth root positioning
  • Cysts and abscesses
  • Fractures in existing fillings
  • Tumors
  • Infection in the tooth nerves
  • Bone loss

Our team may also utilize digital X-rays to plan certain dental treatments, such as tooth extraction, root canal treatment, and dental implant restoration. To learn more about digital radiography and how we use X-rays at our office, we welcome you to call or visit us soon.
