When you visit Adept Dental Shafter for a comprehensive exam, you will most likely see us use digital X-rays. We use these to examine the state of your dental health to address any problems we find and work with you one-on-one to develop a personalized treatment plan. Unlike traditional X-rays, these involve less radiation and process faster since they do not contain any film. Because they do not have use any film, we can transfer them over to our monitor for us to confirm a more accurate diagnosis and provide the care you need. With this digital radiography, our dentist can:

  • Check for tooth decay
  • View any fractures in your dental restorations
  • Assess the nerves of your teeth
  • Look for signs of bone loss
  • Evaluate the development of your teeth
  • Diagnose tumors, cysts and abscesses
  • Examine the position of the roots of your teeth

Digital X-rays can also be helpful in planning your treatment. For example, we can assess whether you need treatments like dental implants, root canal therapy, oral surgery or orthodontics to help ensure you maintain a healthy, beautiful smile. If you have any questions about digital X-rays in Shafter, California, and would like to schedule a comprehensive exam with Dr. Olivia Park, please contact us at 661-746-6989.
