Digital x-rays help in the diagnosis and treatment of periodontal disease and decay in areas of the teeth that are difficult or impossible to see clinically. They illustrate bone height, bone defects, infection, root involvement, tartar and decay. Digital x-rays are also beneficial in determining if the disease is progressing or if arrested. Here in Morrliton, Dr. Dixon's digital radiographic system allows for quick, on-screen reference to facilitate your understanding of any areas of concern. The system is more sensitive than dental x-ray film systems, so your exposure to x-rays is cut by as much as 90%. The large, color-enhanced images let you see what Dr. Dixon sees, so it's easier for you to understand your condition and possible treatment, if required.
What if your child could see what we see? At Dixon Family Dental, Intra-Oral Video and Photography are utilized to assist patients who want to be active participants in their own dental care. Is you are in the Morrilton area, come in and ask our dental hygienist for a complete tour of your child's mouth. Then, we'll immediately print a photograph of any area(s) you would like.
