At Premier Dental of Clayton, Dr. Head and team know that great dentistry starts with accurate diagnosis. Our dental practice uses the highest quality dental imaging technology to accurately diagnose the health of each patient’s teeth and jaws.
Every Premier Dental of Clayton location uses the latest technology in digital radiography. This provides high-definition images that give our dentists detailed information about your teeth. Our HD x-rays show a clear view of cavities in their earliest stages, called incipient lesions. Catching cavities early gives you the ability to stop them and prevent the need for invasive dental treatment.
These images also show a close-up view of the jawbone surrounding the teeth. Monitoring the health of the supporting bone is vital to preventing gum disease.
At your first visit, we take a full mouth series of x-rays in order to get a comprehensive view of your mouth. Then each year, we obtain a much smaller set of images to continue evaluating your dental health.
Digital x-rays require far less radiation than traditional film x-rays. The air you breathe in one year exposes you to 450 times the amount of radiation as your yearly dental x-rays. The risk for any problems from dental radiation is negligible.
Some of the Premier Dental of Ohio locations are equipped with CBCT (cone beam computed tomography) machines for taking three-dimensional images. These 3D images are useful for planning dental implants, evaluating the root structure and bone support of the teeth, measuring the airway and identifying problems in the jaw joints.
If you have a dental concern which requires three-dimensional evaluation, you will be referred to the nearest location with 3D imaging.
Consistent dental X-Rays can help Dr. Head catch problems earlier, which leads to less extensive and less expensive dental treatments. New patients at Premier Dental of Clayton can receive Digital X-Rays in addition to a comprehensive exam and cleaning for an introductory price of $89.
