Digital X-rays at Mooney Family Dental means less Radiation

At Mooney Family dental, we provide our patients with the latest in advanced, digital radiography.

Why do we take Xrays?

Dental radiographs (x-rays) are an essential, preventative and diagnostic tool that provides us with valuable information that is not visible during a regualr exam. Without x-rays, problem areas may go untreated. Dental x-rays may reveal:

  • Abscesses or cysts.
  • Bone loss.
  • Cancerous and non-cancerous tumors.
  • Decay between the teeth.
  • Developmental abnormalities.
  • Poor tooth and root positions.
  • Problems inside a tooth or below the gum line.

Detecting and treating dental problems at an early stage can save you time, money, unnecessary discomfort, and your teeth!

Advantages of Digital X-rays

Digital x-rays have many advantages when compared with old fashioned film-based machines, including:

  • Reduced radiation exposure (up to 90% less than traditional systems)
  • Enhanced ability to refine image quality
  • Instant viewing (no waiting for films to develop)
  • Environmentally friendly (no toxic chemicals)

Best of all, it’s easy for you to see what Dr. Mooney sees. Your digital x-ray can be seen on a computer screen located next to your dental chair. This helps you understand your needs and make and informed choice about any treatment.
