Dental care without the scare

Digital X Rays and More in Pittsburgh, PA

Digital X rays Pittsburgh, PAAt a glance, your teeth may look healthy. When you smile, people can't help but comment on how straight and white your teeth seem.

But dental care involves more than the surface of your teeth. If you want to stop decay in its tracks, you need to carefully monitor every aspect of your mouth, from your tooth's enamel, dentin, and root to your gum's gingiva, periodontal ligaments, and alveolar sockets.

At Pittsburgh Dental Spa, our dentist will closely assess your oral health via traditional and digital x-rays in Pittsburgh, PA. These devices enable us to find wisdom teeth, bone loss, and cavities that you can't see at a glance.

Catch Decay Early

When you come in for cleaning and treatment, we'll start your visit with one or more of the following:

  • Bitewing. These x-rays display the lower and upper back teeth as well as their alignment.
  • Periapical. These x-rays focus individual teeth in their entirety, from the root to the crown.
  • Occlusal. These x-rays show the mouth's floor or roof.
  • Panoramic. These x-rays present a larger view of the sinuses, jaws, and joints.
  • Digital. This type of x-ray records the same information present in the other x-ray types, but it saves the information on a computer rather than on a film.

Keep in mind that we use traditional and digital x-rays in Pittsburgh, PA based on your age, risk for disease, and other dental problems we may find. For example, we may use bitewing x-rays during basic checkups but full-mouth periapical x-rays during your first trip to our office.
