Safer Radiography, Greater Detail
Our Stuart, FL dental office uses some of the most advanced x-ray technology on the market. We are one of the few dental practices in Florida to use the dental CT scan, called i-CAT, which takes 3D pictures of the mouth, face, and jaw. X-rays can reveal a wealth of information, such as:
- The condition of the teeth beneath the gums
- The position of teeth roots
- The condition of the jaw
- Teeth that have not erupted
- Abscesses, cysts, and tumors
Dental x-rays are beneficial to both the dentist and the patient. With digital X-rays, radiation is reduced up to 90%, and no development chemicals are necessary. Once your x-rays are captured, they’ll show up on a chairside monitor in the treatment room. Dr. Sohl will use data from x-rays, intraoral images, and his visual inspection to determine what, if any, treatment is required.
