Why do I need x-rays?
X-rays are an important diagnostic tool that Dr. Sladky uses to detect dental concerns early on and see what’s going on internally in your mouth. This allows him to see issues such as tooth decay, breakdown, or fractures, which are most effectively treated in their earliest stage. Early detection gives you the opportunity to treat these issues with less invasive treatment procedures.
Many patients are concerned about the amount of radiation they receive from x-rays. At Sladky Family Dental, we are committed to utilizing advanced technology that is designed to make each patient’s experience more comfortable and safe. We use digital x-rays, which emit 80% less radiation than the standard x-rays of the past. So you can rest assured they are very safe and are a much-needed resource for maintaining optimum oral health.
Dr. Sladky and his team are committed to using state-of-the-art technology to make treatment diagnosis and procedures more comfortable and efficient for you. Digital x-rays are one of the ways we do this because they offer a clearer picture of your teeth that is available immediately so that Dr. Sladky is able to diagnose in a more timely and accurate manner.
Digital x-rays are a benefit to both our doctor and our patients. If you'd like to schedule an appointment with our experienced team, don't hesitate to give us a call today for more information!
