X-Ray Q & A

What can you see with digital dental X-rays?

Digital dental X-rays are advanced diagnostic tools and have revolutionized the role that X-rays play in dental care.

Popper Dental uses panoramic digital X-rays on almost all their patients. These capture a full view of the upper and lower dental arches, complete with the entire jawbone, all the teeth, and the surrounding facial structures.

At Popper Dental, digital X-rays offer team members insight into dental problems you may be experiencing, such as:

  • Bone loss
  • Abscesses and cysts
  • Tooth decay
  • Developmental abnormalities
  • Fillings fractures
  • Infections in tooth nerves
  • Improper tooth root positioning
  • Tumors 

Digital X-rays can capture such enlightening images because they use digital sensors rather than traditional film. As an added bonus, they also expose you to far less radiation than traditional X-rays.

How can X-rays help with my treatment?

X-rays are essential to effective dental treatment. They help the Popper Dental team to not only diagnose problems, but also plan root canal treatments, orthodontics, dental implant procedures, and various other oral surgery procedures and dental treatments. 

How do CT scans work?

If you’re planning a surgical procedure like a sinus lift or dental implant placement, the team can also turn to their onsite CT machine, a specialized X-ray machine. 

CT machines can measure the depth of your bones, and produce a 3D image of your soft tissues, teeth, and nerve pathways all in one scan.

When you visit Popper Dental for a CT scan, your provider asks you to sit in a chair or lie down on an exam table. To make sure they capture the best image, they position you facing the center of the machine.

As you sit or lie perfectly still, the CT machine completes a 360° rotation around your head, capturing images as it goes. Once it’s taken all of the images it needs, it combines them into one comprehensive image.

Why should I seek out a dental provider with a fully digital office?

Full digital offices, like Popper Dental, provide you with comprehensive care that surpasses that of those that use traditional equipment.

With digital X-ray and CT machine capabilities in-office, the team at Popper Dental can get results that are extremely accurate and detailed, all the while taking less time away from your day. 

The imaging process at Popper Dental is also comfortable, convenient, fast, and safe. After taking images of your mouth or teeth, your provider can instantly view the images with you in the treatment room.
