Digital X-rays provide several advanced imaging options designed to save time, provide clearer dental photos, and expose patients to less radiation than traditional X-ray technology.
Our practice is focused on making your dental experience as comfortable as possible. At your next appointment, we'll be happy to answer any questions you may have about our digital X-ray technology.
Using an intra-oral camera, Dr. Shipp can inspect every aspect of your teeth, gums, and mouth with amazing detail. This allows her to discover cracks, difficult to see plaque deposits and cavities adjacent to fillings and along the gum line.
