Changing Smiles for the Better
All-on-4 dental implants are a modern way to replace a full set of teeth. They make people with missing teeth feel better and more confident by giving them strong, comfortable, and effective new teeth.
Digital X-rays: What are they?
To acquire a more accurate picture of your oral health, your dentist may take digital dental X-rays or digital dental photos at your regular checkup. These X-rays help dentists detect abnormalities that can’t be seen with the naked eye, such as difficulties with your teeth, gums, and jawbone. Cavities, infections, and bone loss are just some of the things they can pick up on. In other cases, a 3D scan is employed to get an even closer look. To handle issues effectively, early detection is key. X-rays and our 3D scanner help us pinpoint dental issues when you visit Global Implant Dentistry in Tustin, California.

Sometimes, for things like dental implants or checking for problems like TMJ, bone loss, gum infections, or tooth root issues, your dentist might suggest a CT scan. This machine takes a 20-40 second scan of your head to create detailed pictures for a customized treatment plan.
Advantages of Digital Dental X-rays
- Enhanced Image Quality
One of the standout benefits of digital dental X-rays is their exceptional image quality. The digital sensors used in these X-rays are highly sensitive, capturing images with remarkable clarity. Dentists can zoom in on specific areas, enabling them to identify even the tiniest dental abnormalities.

Compared to traditional X-rays, digital dental X-rays emit significantly less radiation. This is a crucial advantage for patient safety, particularly for those who may require frequent X-ray examinations as part of their treatment plan.

Digital X-rays produce instant results. Dentists no longer need to wait for film development, allowing for faster diagnoses and treatment decisions. This is especially beneficial in emergency dental cases.

Digital dental X-rays are environmentally responsible. They eliminate the need for chemical processing and reduce the generation of hazardous waste associated with traditional X-rays.
- Applications of Digital Dental X-rays
Digital dental X-rays are invaluable for diagnosing a wide range of dental issues, including cavities, gum disease, infections, and oral cancers. Their precision ensures accurate diagnosis and timely treatment.
