Our dentists would not be doing their job if they did not take periodic x-rays of your teeth at our Belleville dental office. We cannot treat what we can’t see, and dental x-rays allow us to accurately diagnose conditions like decay, gum disease, and infections long before they do long-term damage to your oral health.
At the office of Michael Smith, DMD, we use only digital x-rays that protect our patients by emitting about 80 percent less radiation than film x-rays. Our dentists use them for diagnosing and treating conditions, but they’re also an invaluable educational tool. Because digital x-rays produce such crisp, highly-detailed images, we can show them to you on your chairside monitor, and you can see what we see.
We use state-of-the-art digital sensors to take your x-rays that make the process more comfortable than you might remember in the past. We also use panoramic x-rays when we need to see all of your teeth in a single image.
