Digital X-rays

Comfortable, patient-friendly & safe!

Dental X-rays are essential, preventative, diagnostic aids that provide valuable information not visible during a regular dental exam.  At Alliance Dental Specialists in Oakville, Ontario, we use Digital X-Radiography to safely and accurately detect hidden dental abnormalities and complete an accurate treatment plan while reducing radiation exposure by up to 80 percent. 

Dental Digital x-rays may reveal:

  • Abscesses or cysts
  • Bone loss
  • Cancerous and non-cancerous tumours
  • Decay between the teeth
  • Developmental abnormalities
  • Poor tooth and root positions
  • Problems inside a tooth/below the gum line

Detecting and treating dental problems at an early stage can save you time, money, unnecessary discomfort, and your teeth!

Are dental digital x-rays safe?

The amount of radiation exposure from a full mouth series of x-rays is equal to the amount a person receives in a single day from natural sources. We take necessary precautions to limit your exposure to radiation when taking dental x-rays.  These precautions include using a lead apron shield with a thyroid collar for your protection.
