When you first visit our office, it is important that we get a full vision of your smile to understand both what you want and what you need in terms of your dental treatment. At VanDenburgh, digital X-rays are an important diagnostic tool. A digital X-ray allows us to capture a full image of your entire mouth and jaw area that can be previewed immediately on a display screen. Digital radiography also reduces the amount of radiation used compared to traditional dental X-rays. Our caring dentist may suggest digital dental X-rays in Napa, CA to reveal:
- Tooth decay or damage
- Conditions inside the tooth or under the gumline
- Developmental abnormalities
- Tumors or cysts
- Bone loss in the jawbone
You will have a full series of digital X-rays taken during your first appointment with Dr. VanDenburgh. This will include bitewing X-rays to assess your natural bite. If necessary, subsequent digital X-rays may be taken in later appointments to ensure your smile is healthy and functioning properly. To schedule your first appointment at our dental office, please give us a call or stop by for a visit. Our dental team is caring and friendly, and we look forward to helping you get started on the road to better health.
