Radiographs (X-Rays)

During your routine checkup, our team will help take digital radiographs (X-rays) of your teeth, which Dr. Alexander will look at during your exam to determine the state of your teeth above and below the gumline and detect any issues that may be of concern.

Dr. Alexander and our team use digital X-rays to capture high-quality images of your teeth and surrounding structures. Unlike traditional X-rays, these involve extremely minimal radiation, making them very safe for your health and the environment. They also process images of your teeth immediately thanks to their digital sensor, instead of using film and unwanted chemicals.

As we take your digital X-rays, the images automatically upload to our computer for Dr. Alexander to provide you with an accurate diagnosis and advise your treatment options. With digital radiography, we are able to detect:

  • Cavities, infections, tumors, cysts and abscesses
  • Breakage of a filling
  • Tooth decay found between your teeth
  • Bone loss
  • Pathology and abnormalities
  • Periodontal disease

Digital X-rays can also help with:

  • Assisting in root canal procedures to see tooth roots
  • Checking tooth development
  • Reviewing the status of erupted teeth, such as your third molars (wisdom teeth)

Having digital radiographs of your teeth provides us with the additional information not able to be found with a visual exam alone. This allows us to plan your treatment more effectively to ensure you receive the care you need.

My experience at my appointment at encompass was the best ever I usually am over the top with anxiety. They were very reassuring and comforting. Definitely recommend them to anyone.
