Unlike traditional x-rays these require minimal radiation, they use special sensors to send the image to the computer, so that they may be examined immediately at different intensities and sizes as deemed necessary, so as to give the best diagnosis possible. They also make it easier for you to send them to your Insurance company or to other doctors is needed.

From Cavities, fractures, infections, teeth that are out of place, wisdom teeth or even broken teeth. It can even be used to detect much more complicated problems such as cancer.
