An extremely important part of experiencing comprehensive general dentistry in Lexington is having the right kind of x-rays of your smile. Gone are the days when the dentist would drape you in a heavy leaded vest and leave the room. Our office is equipped with the latest, state-of-the-art technology that’s designed with your comfort and safety always in mind. We offer:
Digital X-Rays – These types of x-rays are significantly easier for your dentist to read. Like we said earlier, you’re exposure to radiation compared to traditional x-rays is greatly decreased. Digital x-rays are also more environmentally friendly because we no longer have to rely on chemicals or film, so there’s no waste that could potentially be a hazard.
Panoramic X-Rays – Panoramic x-rays are great for patients with gag reflex issues because there’s no film or device in your mouth. This high-tech machine actually moves around your head in a half-circle while capturing an image of your entire mouth. We can use these x-rays to evaluate for future dental restorations, check the position of wisdom teeth, and look for abscesses.
