Many patients worry about the frequency of dental x-rays, and we understand. Your safety and comfort matter to us. We use digital x-rays at Platte Canyon Dental because they minimize your radiation exposure significantly. Digital x-rays are a state-of-the-art diagnostic tool that enables Dr. Linn to see inside your teeth and gums—areas that she cannot see with a visual exam.
The highly-detailed images produced with digital x-rays let Dr. Linn find cavities and gum disease early on, long before they progress and cause you any discomfort. We also use digital x-rays as an educational tool because we share the images with you on your chairside monitor. When you see the problem for yourself, you will know exactly what the problem is and why we recommend treatment.
We store your digital x-rays on our secure in-house network, so they are easy to access for reference, to monitor ongoing conditions, and to share with specialists and your insurance companies.
