Digital x-rays have been a staple in our West Orange Dental office for more than a decade. Through high magnification, digital x-rays can enable both the dentist and the patient to see a variety of dental problems, such as broken teeth, bone-loss, cavities and infections in the surrounding bone with much more ease and accuracy than conventional x-rays. Digital x-rays are an invaluable aid in determining a comprehensive treatment plan for a patient. Dr. Sonet will often combine a digital image that is several dozen times the size of a conventional x-ray image, along with a highly detailed color photograph from an intra-oral camera, to show his patients exactly where a dental problem may lie. In this manner, digital x-rays and color oral photography can be used as tools to educate a patient about potential dental problems and what can be done to correct them.
