Dental X-rays play a vital role in diagnosing and treating various oral health issues. Here at Minorca Smiles, we use digital imaging technologies to capture your X-rays comfortably and efficiently so that our dentist can examine your teeth and smile in detail.

Dental X-Rays

Digital X-rays utilize digital sensors rather than traditional photographic film. One of the most notable advantages of digital X-rays is their ability to use significantly less radiation, making the process safer for patients without compromising the quality of diagnostic information. This reduction in radiation exposure is a critical consideration for both you and our dentist and team, aligning with the broader healthcare industry’s focus on minimizing patient risk.

The efficiency of digital X-rays is unmatched. The use of a digital sensor enables instant capture and display of images, allowing Dr. Raymond del Castillo to view high-quality images on monitors within the treatment room immediately. This immediacy facilitates efficient, accurate diagnoses and care, vastly improving your experience by reducing waiting times and the need for repeat exposures.

Digital radiography also eliminates the need for chemical processing of films, further enhancing its appeal as an environmentally friendly option. This aspect not only streamlines the diagnostic process but also reduces the environmental footprint of our practice.

Digital X-rays are instrumental in identifying and diagnosing a wide array of dental conditions, including, but not limited to:

  • Decay between teeth
  • Developmental abnormalities
  • Improper positioning of tooth roots
  • Cysts and abscesses
  • Fractures in existing fillings
  • Tumors
  • Infections in tooth nerves
  • Bone loss

They are also indispensable in planning a diverse range of dental treatments, from oral surgery and root canal treatment to the placement of dental implants and orthodontic interventions.
