Dr. Williams carefully chooses which radiographs are taken. There are many guidelines that we follow. Radiographs allow us to see everything we cannot see with our own eyes. Radiographs enable us to detect cavities in between your teeth, determine bone level, and analyze the health of your bone. We can also examine the roots and nerves of teeth, diagnose lesions such as cysts or tumors, as well as assess damage when trauma occurs.
Dental radiographs are invaluable aids in diagnosing, treating, and maintaining dental health. Exposure time for dental radiographs is extremely minimal. Dr. Williams utilizes Digital Imaging Technologies within the office. With digital imaging, exposure time is about 50 percent less when compared to traditional radiographs. Digital imaging can also help us retrieve valuable diagnostic information allowing us to see cavities more clearly.
Digital imaging allows us to store patient images, and enables us to quickly and easily transfer them to specialists or insurance companies.
Digital X-rays offer more precision since we view the image on a computer monitor, instead of holding up a 35mm film up to the light. Digital X-rays results in 1/6th the radiation exposure to you.
Email & Text Confirmation
In today’s fast paced world, picking up a phone during business hours doesn’t always work. If a patient provides an email address or cell phone number, they can receive reminders about upcoming appointments and other communications. They can also email or text back making it easy and secure to get and receive information.
Patient’s can request an appointment, confirm, or send a secure communication at their convenience. We strive to make our office as accessible as possible and patient’s can be assured their concerns will be addressed in a timely manner.
