Our digital X-rays help our dentist see what is going on in your smile while protecting your smile health. Dr. Connaughton at Tree City Family Dental in Boise, Idaho, uses low radiation digital radiography (digital X-rays) instead of traditional X-rays to show us how best to care for your smile. Digital X-rays allow us to find and treat problems early on when they require the least invasive procedures. They help us by revealing the following:

  • Decay between your pearly whites.
  • Bone loss due to periodontal disease.
  • Decay beneath your tooth fillings.
  • If there is an infection at the tip of the tooth root near the bone.
  • The full picture of your mouth before performing a dental treatment.

With digital radiography, the process is faster, more comfortable, and more convenient than ever before. Our digital X-rays use a digital sensor to take images of your teeth, unlike traditional X-rays which use film. In addition, digital X-rays use much less radiation than conventional film X-rays, and they require the use of no chemicals for developing the images. Digital X-rays also help us plan dental procedure such as oral surgery procedures, root canal treatment, and dental implants.

Our low radiation digital X-rays are just one of the state-of-the-art tools we use to help you maintain your healthy smile. If you have any concerns about your smile or want to schedule your next visit, please call 208-286-2699 today. From our family to yours, Dr. Connaughton and all of us at Tree City Family Dental in Boise, Idaho wish you a healthy Thanksgiving holiday!
