Radiographs, or dental x-rays, are how your dentist ensures the health of your teeth and gums. This tool gives our professional dentists an inside view of your mouth and allows them to collect valuable information that could not be gained simply by examining the mouth with only the eyes. Dental x rays are safe and highly effective, detecting dental issues that are not seen on the surface of teeth.
Lutke Dental uses the most advanced technology to ensure every dental abnormality is detected and treatment is as effective as possible. Digital x-rays use an electronic sensor to capture & store data about your teeth, making it easy for dentists to view the full structure of your mouth without the added radiation of traditional x-ray machines.
With the help of an x-ray machine, your oral health will be pristine, and any issues or abnormalities in your teeth can be spotted and treated before they lead to worsening dental problems. Your dentist will recommend a customized treatment plan for you, keeping your mouth healthy and bright.
X-rays are very safe, especially compared to older machines that expose the body to much more radiation than digital x-rays. Not only are they safer for your overall health, but they are also much more comfortable, and you won’t have to wait for the images to process. Captured images are sent straight to our computer, so your dentist can start looking for dental problems immediately.
Each patient may need a different number of x-rays throughout their lifetime, depending on how severe dental issues are and what type of treatment plan your dentist has outlined. After reviewing several factors, including your medical history, age, symptoms, dental history, and risk of health diseases, your dentist will recommend dental x-rays if needed to ensure that treatment is accurate and successful.
Our digital x-rays get fantastic images within seconds, allowing us to make sure that you and your loved ones are taken care of with the best dental technology and oral health team in the state of Texas.
