How Do Digital X-Rays Work?
The process of taking a digital dental x-ray at our office in Copperas Cove is safe and painless. Our dentist places a small sensor in your mouth between your teeth and tongue. The position of the sensor is adjusted so that the specified area with potential abnormality becomes visible.
Once we take an x-ray, the final image is sent to our computer within a few seconds. The dentist can adjust the sensor to take multiple x-rays from different angles. It helps to view the affected teeth and surrounding structures in detail for better understanding. After completing this process, our team will also show you the digital images and point out areas of concern. Digital x-rays also help our patients to understand their oral health better.

How Often Should You Get Dental X-Rays?
Dental x-rays are a part of routine examinations at our dental office. Periapical x-rays are common that visualize a single tooth and its surrounding tissues. They diagnose tooth decay, pulp infections, root caries, tooth crack, or other acute causes of pain. Bitewing x-rays are important to assess tooth decay and bone loss, particularly in patients with the risk of periodontitis. Panoramic x-rays or OPG show a wider picture of your oral cavity. It can help to analyze all your teeth and surrounding jawbones at a deeper level.
At our dental practice in Copperas Cove, the team carefully assesses each case before determining the frequency of digital x-rays.
