Digital X-Rays

Digital X-rays are increasing in popularity among dental offices because they provide a quick, clear image of your oral health with less radiation than a traditional X-ray. Dr. Robert Walinchus utilizes digital radiography in Springfield, Pennsylvania, to evaluate the state of your mouth, diagnose any developing health conditions, and design a personalized treatment plan. When you visit our Robert E. Walinchus, DMD dentist, feel free to ask about the benefits of digital X-rays.

Digital X-rays are one of the advanced diagnostic tools we use to provide you with the best possible care. Digital radiography has changed the way we take dental X-rays by making the process faster, more comfortable, and more convenient than ever before. Digital X-rays use a digital sensor to take images of your teeth, unlike traditional X-rays that use film. Digital X-rays use significantly less radiation than conventional film X-rays, and they require the use of no chemicals for developing the images. Our doctor can then instantly view the high-quality images on monitors right in the treatment room to provide you with efficient, accurate diagnoses and care. Our team is able to use digital radiography to identify and diagnose several types of dental problems, such as:

  • Decay in between teeth
  • Fractures in existing fillings
  • Developmental abnormalities
  • Tumors
  • Improper tooth root positioning
  • Infection in the tooth nerves
  • Cysts and abscesses
  • Bone loss

We may also use digital dental X-rays to plan certain kinds of dental treatment, such as oral surgery procedures, root canal treatment, dental implants, and more. To learn more about digital radiography and how we use X-rays at our office, we welcome you to call or visit us soon.
