Digital x-rays are an excellent diagnostic tool that Dr. Aiello uses to detect conditions like gum disease and tooth decay early on. X-rays are also useful for pinpointing issues such as tumors or jaw joint problems.
Digital x-rays are readily available for Dr. Aiello to review with you, and they offer a high definition picture of what's going on inside your mouth. They are safer for our patients since they offer 80 percent less radiation than traditional x-rays. And since digital x-rays don't require processing chemicals, they don't negatively impact the environment.
