Dr. Osendorf chooses carefully which and when digital x-rays are taken. There are many guidelines that we follow. Digital x-rays allow us to see everything we cannot see with our own eyes. Digital x-rays enable us to detect cavities in between your teeth, determine bone level, and health of bone. We can also examine the roots and nerves of teeth, diagnose lesions such as cysts or tumors, as well as assess damage when trauma occurs.
Dental digital x-rays are invaluable aids in diagnosing, treating, and maintaining dental health. Exposure time for dental digital x-rays is extremely minimal. Dr. Osendorf utilizes digital imaging technologies within the office. With digital imaging, exposure time is about 75 percent less when compared to traditional x-rays. Digital imaging can also help us retrieve valuable diagnostic information. We may be able to see cavities better.
The advantages of digital imaging enables us to not only store patient images, but also enables us to quickly transfer them to appropriate specialists or insurance companies.
