Part of your cleaning and prevention plan at Ballwin Dental Care is taking dental X-rays of your teeth. Drs. Simonds, Gennaoui, and Schrameyer use the latest dental X-ray technology known as digital radiography. This technology uses an electronic sensor to capture and store digital images of your teeth.
The process of using digital radiography in Ballwin, Missouri, is faster and more comfortable than the process of using X-ray film, and it reduces radiation exposure by significant amounts. Because the digital images can be viewed instantly, our doctors will be able to detect and diagnose any abnormalities and developing problems at a faster and more efficient rate.
It is important to have dental X-rays taken of your teeth to prevent discomfort, pain, and permanent damage to your mouth. Even though digital radiography is significantly safer than traditional X-ray film, we still take all of the necessary precautions to prevent unnecessary exposure to radiation. Your health and safety are of the utmost importance to us.
The frequency and need for X-rays are based on medical and dental history, a dental exam, signs and symptoms, your age, and risk of disease. If you are experiencing any difficulties or pain, we highly recommend that you arrange an appointment with your dentist promptly.
