In our commitment to caring for your overall health, we use digital X-rays in Enumclaw, Washington. This is one of our most commonly used diagnostic tools, and it has changed the way that we approach dental procedures because we can instantly view high-quality images of your smile in the treatment room.

Traditionally, X-rays use film, chemicals and higher levels of radiation to develop images of your teeth. The digital X-ray uses low radiation and a digital sensor to take images of your teeth, omitting the need for film, chemicals or high levels of radiation. Dr. Rochelle Riley like this tool because it allows us to diagnose your smile’s needs without harming your body.

Our dentists and team at Northwest Dental Medicine Enumclaw usually use digital radiography during your first appointment so that we can view aspects of your smile that are difficult to be seen with the naked eye. With the results of your X-ray, we can create a personalized treatment plan.

This tool can diagnose:

  • Decay between the teeth
  • Developmental abnormalities
  • Poor tooth root positioning
  • Abscesses and cysts
  • Fractures in dental fillings
  • Tumors
  • Infection
  • Bone loss

We can plan the following treatments based on your X-rays:

  • Oral surgery
  • Root canal treatment
  • Dental implants
  • Orthodontics
  • General checkups
