Digital X-Rays

Our dentists and team use X-rays to look for potential health issues with your smile and to help create your course of treatment. At Freeman Dental Associates of Cohasset, we utilize digital X-rays in Cohasset, Massachusetts. These X-rays decrease your exposure to radiation, lessen our impact on the environment and help us manage your health information. Dr. Alison Freeman or Dr. Katie Murphy will be happy to tell you more, so call 781.383.6555 today to plan your visit.

dental servicesDigital X-rays are one of the advanced diagnostic tools we use to provide you with the best possible care. Digital radiography has changed the way we take dental X-rays by making the process faster, more comfortable and more convenient than ever before. Digital X-rays use a digital sensor to take images of your teeth, unlike traditional X-rays that use film. Digital X-rays use significantly less radiation than conventional film X-rays and require the use of no chemicals for developing the images. Our dentists can then instantly view the high-quality images on monitors right in the treatment room to provide you with efficient, accurate diagnoses and care. Our team is able to use digital radiography to identify and diagnose several types of dental problems, such as:

  • Decay in between teeth
  • Developmental abnormalities
  • Improper tooth root positioning
  • Cysts and abscesses
  • Fractures in existing fillings
  • Tumors
  • Infection in the tooth nerves
  • Bone loss

Digital dental X-rays are used to plan many kinds of dental treatment, such as oral surgery procedures, root canal treatment, dental implants, orthodontics and more. To learn more about digital radiography and how we use X-rays at our office, we welcome you to call or visit us soon.
