To help keep you safe, we use only digital X-rays at Red Oaks Dental. Digital X-rays require significantly less radiation than traditional X-ray film, which means that every visit to our office is completely safe for you and your family. The digital images are used to help us determine the state of your oral health and detect any problems, such as tooth decay between the teeth, that can’t be detected with the naked eye. In addition to digital X-rays, we also use a Panorex (panoramic digital X-ray machine) which gives us the full view of your teeth, jaw, and sinuses. Panorex images can help us more accurately treatment plan and determine the positions of the teeth.
