Your Santa Rosa family dentist, Dr. Alavi, uses digital X-rays that lower radiation exposure by up to 90% as compare to traditional radiographs. Digital x-rays also help facilitate better communication with patients and specialists since they can easily be viewed and transferred. Dr. Alavi will recommend the type of X-rays to be taken based on your individual needs and guidelines set by the American Dental Asssociation.
Why are dental radiographs neccessary?
Radiographs are a diagnostic aid that allows for the detection of pathology that is not visible to the naked eye. X-rays aid in the detection of cavities, bone loss below gums, infection in the bone and around roots of teeth, damage from trauma, and lesions such as cysts and tumors.
