Digital X-Rays
Hi, I'm Dr. Tracey.

I believe you deserve a
healthy, confident smile.

One of the advanced diagnostic tools our dentist and team use here at Boulder Valley Dental Center is the digital X-ray. In the past, dental radiography required time and the use of chemicals to develop images of your teeth and supporting structures. Digital radiography changed the way that our dentist and team take X-rays, using digital sensors to capture images of your mouth and transmit them to a nearby monitor almost instantly. The X-ray process is quick, comfortable and more convenient than ever before.

Digital X-rays also produce highly detailed images so that our dentist can provide you with more efficient and accurate diagnoses and treatments that meet your needs. X-rays are used in many different types of treatment including oral surgery procedures, root canal treatment, dental implant placement and orthodontic treatment. Using X-rays, our team can diagnose a wide range of problems, including:

  • Tooth decay
  • Developmental abnormalities
  • Improper tooth root positioning
  • Cysts, abscesses and tumors
  • Fractures in the teeth and in fillings
  • Infection in the tooth nerves
  • Bone loss

Digital X-rays are also very safe for use and, in fact, produce up to 90% less radiation than film X-rays.
