Dr. Kevin Lacour and Dr. Charles Burch use digital X-rays to examine your teeth and mouth. X-rays help our dentists and team identify any developing issues and plan your treatments so you can receive the precise and effective care you need to regain a healthy smile.

Digital X-rays are a type of diagnostic tool. Traditional film X-rays required both time and the use of toxic chemicals to develop images. Digital radiography, however, allows our dentists to view the captured images instantly, giving you a faster imaging process and reducing the time you spend waiting. The images are captured using a small digital sensor and then projected immediately to a nearby monitor, giving you a more comfortable overall experience and allowing our dentists to view your teeth and supporting structures in detail almost instantly. We can then provide you with an efficient, accurate diagnosis and recommend a treatment plan for you.

Digital X-rays are typically used to diagnose problems such as:

  • Tooth decay, including decay between the teeth
  • Developmental abnormalities
  • Improper tooth root positioning
  • Abscesses, tumors and cysts
  • Infection
  • Bone loss

We may also use X-rays to plan various types of treatment, such as an oral surgery procedure, root canal therapy or orthodontic treatment.
