Dr. Leo Man, Dr. Roxanne Ramirez and Dr. Elizabeth Kim use digital X-rays to closely examine your teeth and supporting structures. This advanced technology allows our dentists and team to see your teeth in great detail, giving us the ability to diagnose problems such as tooth decay in the earliest stages of development.
Digital X-rays rely on a small digital sensor to capture images, reducing your radiation exposure during the imaging process by up to 90%. This digital sensor makes the imaging process quick and comfortable, and displays the results from the X-ray instantly on a nearby monitor so that our dentists can provide you with quick and accurate diagnoses.
Digital X-rays are frequently used to identify problems such as:
- Tooth decay
- Developmental abnormalities
- Improper tooth root positioning
- Cysts, abscesses and tumors
- Fractures in the teeth and in restorations
- Infection in the tooth nerves
- Bone loss
This technology is also used in planning treatments, including oral surgery, root canal therapy and orthodontic treatment. We invite you to call us at 714-852-3140 to schedule your consultation with our dentists at SA Dental and learn more about the benefits of digital X-rays in Santa Ana, California.
