Your health always comes first! Dr. David Evans in Boulder, Colorado uses state of the art digital dental X-ray equipment to reduce the amount of radiation exposure patients are subjected to by up to 50-70% compared to regular dental X-rays. Digital dental X-rays also help the environment by eliminating the use of chemicals used to process the film. Even though digital dental X-rays are low radiation and considered very safe, Dr. Evans takes every precaution to limit exposure with the use of a lead apron shield to further protect the body.
EARLY DETECTION SAVES YOU TIME AND MONEY
Dr. David Evans uses these images to detect possible diseases of the teeth and surrounding tissue that cannot be seen with just a regular mouth exam. Digital dental X-rays can reveal decay between teeth or under existing fillings or restorations, developmental abnormalities, infections in the bone, gum disease, cysts, and even cancerous and non-cancerous tumors. Having regular digital dental X-rays can help discover and allow treatment of dental problems at an early stage, saving you time, money, unnecessary discomfort, and most of all, your teeth.
