During your routine checkups at our office, our dentists carefully examine your smile to check for signs of decay and other forms of damage that require treatment. In some cases, we also utilize digital X-rays to get a more in-depth view of your smile and to ensure we treat any dental problems as soon as possible. Digital radiography allows us to see damage and other conditions that may not be visible with the unassisted eye, helping us to provide the treatment you need before the condition progresses and causes further harm to your smile. Drs. Sonny and Fara Afshar may use digital X-rays to detect and diagnose issues such as:

  • Bone loss
  • Developmental abnormalities
  • Tooth decay and cavities in between teeth
  • Tumors
  • Irregular tooth root positions
  • Impacted teeth (teeth that are stuck in the bone and gum tissue)
  • Abscesses and cysts
  • Fractures in existing fillings

Our dentists may also utilize digital radiography in Cameron Park, California, to plan some types of treatment, including dental implants, root canal therapy, and more. Digital X-rays are faster and more comfortable for our patients than traditional film X-rays, and they also utilize significantly less radiation.
