What is digital radiography?

Digital radiography is one of the advanced diagnostic tools we use at Ohio Urgent Dental Care to provide you with the highest level of dental care. While traditional X-rays use film to capture images of your teeth and surrounding areas, digital X-rays use a digital sensor. This results in instant, high-quality images that require no chemicals to develop. Digital radiography also utilizes up to 90% less radiation than conventional film X-rays. Our talented dentists, Dr. Huber, Dr. Pelkey and Dr. Shumway, can utilize digital X-rays to detect several kinds of dental problems, including:

  • Developmental abnormalities
  • Tooth decay between teeth
  • Bone loss
  • Cysts, tumors, and abscesses
  • Impacted or incorrectly aligned wisdom teeth
  • Improper tooth root positions
  • Infection in the tooth nerves

In addition, we frequently use digital X-rays to plan dental treatments like tooth extraction, wisdom teeth removal, root canal therapy, and more. We also use digital radiography to assess the extent of dental trauma, facial injury, and sports injuries. The process of taking a digital dental X-ray in Grove City, Ohio is comfortable and quick, and we can immediately review the images on a screen right in your treatment room.
