What are Dental X-Rays?
Dental x-rays are a routine part of general dentistry because they allow Beaverton dentist Dr. Michael Negru to see what is happening below the surface of your teeth and gums. X-rays are also used in a number of cosmetic dentistry services and for the planning of dental implants.
Traditional x-rays use radiation to provide an internal image of your teeth and gums. However, even small amounts of radiation can be harmful to your body. Dr. Negru utilizes state-of-the-art technology such as digital x-rays at our comfortable Beaverton dental office. Digital x-rays emit 85 percent less radiation than traditional options. They can also be done without the need of bite-trays, and produce an instant image from which Dr. Negru can work.
During your regularly scheduled appointments with our Beaverton dentist, we would be happy to answer any questions you have about digital x-rays and help you better understand the necessity of this diagnostic tool.
