Dr. Patricia Breen and Dr. Elyse Patrella may take digital X-rays as part of your routine dental exams or if you visit Hills Park Dental for a dental emergency. X-rays play a vital role in your oral health, allowing our dentists to more easily diagnose and treat a variety of dental issues as well as ensuring that we understand your exact oral health needs.

Digital X-rays use digital sensors and computer technology to capture images of your teeth and supporting structures, instantly transmitting the images to a nearby screen where our dentists can view them. This digital process is faster and more comfortable than film X-rays, as well as healthier and safer – no chemicals are needed to develop the images, and digital X-rays produce significantly less radiation. In fact, a digital X-ray exposes you to less radiation than what you are exposed to by the sun in your day-to-day life. After the X-rays are taken, our dentists can review them and provide you with a faster and accurate diagnosis of your oral health.

X-rays are a highly versatile technology, and may be used to diagnose a wide range of issues, including:

  • Bone loss
  • Cysts, abscesses and tumors
  • Developmental abnormalities
  • Fractures in your teeth or in existing fillings or crowns
  • Improper tooth root positioning
  • Infection in the tooth nerves
  • Tooth decay, including decay between the teeth

Digital X-rays are also an invaluable tool in treatment planning and may be used to plan and carry out oral surgery procedures, root canal treatment, implant placement and orthodontic treatments.
