Taking periodic dental x-rays is an invaluable part of the care we provide at Apricot Dental. The highly detailed images they produce help Dr. Randhawa detect cavities and gum disease in their early stages. At the heart of prevention is finding and treating problems in their earliest stages. This saves you the discomfort and expense of more complex problems, and digital x-rays are the key.
Most dental conditions like cavities and gum disease start inside your teeth or under your gums where we can't see with a visual exam. A digital x-ray shows Dr. Randhawa tiny spots of decay or evidence of gum disease in their earliest stages. That way, we can resolve them long before you feel any discomfort.
Even better, we can share the images with you so you can see the problem with your own eyes. You can make more confident decisions about your treatment when you have the full picture!
Another important reason we choose digital x-rays is that we care about your overall safety and well-being. Digital x-rays are safer than older film x-rays because they expose you to about 80 percent less radiation.
The images are digital, so we can store them safely on our secure in-house network. This makes your x-rays easy to access as needed for monitoring or to send to specialists or insurance companies.
