X-Rays In Fleet

When you visit the dentist, it is sometimes necessary to have x-rays taken.  Exactly how often this happens depends on your medical history and current dental condition.  Some people may need X-rays as often as every six months, whereas as others may only need them every other routine examination.  Often people question why x-rays are needed, and the answer is simply because they enable your dentist to examine between the teeth and below the gum line for any hidden or underlying issues.

Here at Time Dental we pride ourselves with providing our patients with the most up to date technology, and are x-rays are no exception.  When taking x-rays, we use the digital method.  Digital radiographs are one of the newest x-ray techniques around, and can reduce radiation by as much as 80 percent.  Instead of the traditional x-rays film being used, a small sensor is placed into the mouth and the x-ray is taken with the click of a button.  This transfers the image instantly to the computer screen for the dentist to examine.  No more waiting around for x-rays to develop!   

These x-rays are part of the Time Dental preventative dentistry philosophy.  One of the great advantages of this process is that radiographs can be digitally compared so that any changes in the teeth that are undetectable to the human eye can be picked up by the computer instead, ensuring any changes in your dental health, no matter how small, can be found.
