In order to better understand your unique dental situation, Dr. Mark Osenieks uses dental X-rays to examine the structure of your teeth. This gives him the familiar black-and-white images that can be used to diagnose different dental problems and diseases. Our dentist can use an X-ray of your teeth, supporting bone and gum tissue to detect infection, decay and a number of other issues. Without X-rays, it would be very difficult for Dr. Osenieks to prevent a small cavity from turning into serious dental trouble.
At our dental practice, we use digital X-rays that use only a small sensor to record the image of your teeth and send it to a computer. Because of this technology, we can take images using up to 90% less radiation than conventional film X-rays. For you, the process is similar to traditional X-rays, but you will not have to wait for the film to finish developing. The benefit of digital radiography in Grand Rapids, Michigan, is our dentist can use a highly detailed image of your mouth to better diagnose dental concerns and determine the very best possible treatment for your individual case.
