Our focus on patient safety and comfort, combined with our commitment to using advanced imaging techniques, makes us a trusted choice for dental X-rays in the Yakima Valley area. Here’s what you need to know about our dental X-ray services:

Why Dental X-Rays Are Important:

  • Early Detection: Dental X-rays allow for the early detection of decay, gum disease, infections, and some types of tumors. Identifying these issues early can lead to more successful treatments and prevent more serious problems.
  • Detailed Imaging: X-rays provide detailed images of your teeth, roots, jawbone, and overall structure of your mouth. This information is crucial for diagnosing problems and planning treatments such as dental implants, braces, extractions, and more.
  • Monitoring Oral Health: Regular X-rays help monitor changes in your oral health over time, allowing your dentist to adjust your care plan as needed to maintain optimal health.

Our Dental X-Ray Technology: At Yakima Valley Dentistry, we are committed to utilizing the latest in dental X-ray technology to enhance patient care:

  • Digital X-Rays: Digital X-rays use less radiation than traditional film X-rays and produce high-quality images that can be instantly viewed and enlarged, helping your dentist to identify issues more effectively.
  • Panoramic X-Rays: For a comprehensive view of your entire mouth, we use panoramic X-rays. These are particularly useful for planning orthodontic treatment and evaluating wisdom teeth.
  • Cone Beam CT (CBCT): For more complex cases, such as implant planning or evaluating jaw issues, we may use CBCT technology. This provides 3D images of your teeth, soft tissues, nerve pathways, and bone in a single scan.

Safety and Comfort: Your safety and comfort are our top priorities. We follow strict guidelines to minimize radiation exposure, including the use of lead aprons and thyroid collars. Our team is highly trained in X-ray safety and techniques, ensuring that you receive the highest standard of care.

When You Might Need Dental X-Rays:

  • During your initial visit to assess your overall oral health
  • As part of your routine dental check-up (typically once a year)
  • To diagnose specific dental issues or before certain treatments
