Our dentists are careful about the use of radiography. There are many guidelines that we follow. Radiography allow us to see parts of your teeth and mouth not normally visible. Radiography enable us to detect cavities in between your teeth, determine bone level, and analyze the health of your bone. We can also examine the roots and nerves of teeth, diagnose lesions (such as cysts or tumors), as well as assess damage when trauma occurs.
Dental radiographs are invaluable aids in diagnosing, treating and maintaining dental health. Exposure time for dental radiographs is extremely minimal. Dr. Lembo and Jaffin utilize digital imaging technology. With digital imaging, exposure time is about 50 percent less as compared to traditional radiographs. Digital imaging can also help us retrieve valuable diagnostic information.
Digital imaging allows us to easily store patient images, and to quickly transfer them to specialists or insurance companies.
