When you come in for your appointment, Dr. Rohini Singh will determine what radiographs (X-rays) are needed. These allow our dentist in Killeen, Texas, to catch problems not visible to the naked eye, as well as determine the health of structures underneath the gumline. These may include the jawbone or the roots and nerves that support and surround the teeth. X-rays may also help diagnose lesions or damage caused by dental trauma.
Our dentist and team strive to provide conservative, safe services for our patients. We carefully evaluate each patient. Exposure during radiographs is minimal and well below safe limits. With digital imaging, our dentist can halve the exposure time with traditional X-rays. It also allows us to see cavities and other forms of decay clearly.
Digital radiographs can be easily archived and stored, allowing Clear Creek Family and Cosmetic Dentistry to share images with any of our patients’ specialists or insurance agencies.
Not only are digital X-rays often clearer than traditional X-rays, they are also one-sixth the radiation exposure. These images can also be displayed and saved on computers for easier access.
To help patients better understand the treatment process, our office uses intraoral cameras. These allow both our dentist and our patients to see the inside of the mouth as it is being treated.
These cameras also allow our dentist to better understand and diagnose dental issues. An intraoral camera is extremely small and can be maneuvered throughout the mouth to gather images. With detailed pictures of your teeth, gums and mouth, our dentist can prescribe effective treatment. This means faster care and fewer visits for our patients!
