Your dental cleaning and prevention plan includes taking dental X-rays of your teeth. At Lakeland Dental Care, our dentists use the latest dental X-ray technology: digital radiography, which is also known as digital X-rays. Using an electronic sensor, the digital X-ray machine will capture and store digital images of your teeth.
How do I know I need a digital X-ray?
Your need and frequency for digital X-rays will be based on your dental and medical history, any symptoms or signs that you may be experiencing, a dental exam, your age, and your risk for disease. You should have a full X-ray of your top and bottom teeth taken periodically as part of a comprehensive examination. Subsequently, additional dental X-rays may be necessary if any unexpected dental problems arise. Our dentists recommend that you visit our office at least once every six months for a routine exam. If you are experiencing any difficulties or pain with your teeth, mouth, or jaw, we highly recommend that you arrange an appointment with Dr. Abernathy immediately. If you would like any more information about the benefits of a digital X-ray in Jackson, Mississippi, we invite you to contact or visit our office today. At Lakeland Dental Care, we are devoted to offering you and your family the high-quality dental care you deserve.
