Intraoral x-rays are an important part of providing dental care. While a dentist can view the outer portions of your teeth and gums during a visual exam, there are many essential parts of your tooth and bone structure that contribute to a healthy mouth that simply cannot be seen by the naked eye. At Martin Taylor Dentistry, Tucson, AZ area patients can benefit from the latest digital dental x-ray technology, which assists our dentists in diagnosing and treating you more effectively.

Benefits of digital mouth x-rays

There are two kinds of x-rays available in dentistry: traditional film x-rays, and the newer digital x-rays. Both are used to see what is happening in the inner structures of your teeth and jaw, but digital x-rays offer several advantages over traditional films, which is why Dr. Martin and Dr. Taylor have committed to using only digital x-ray technology in their practice:

  • The images are much larger and offer more detail than film
  • Digital images can be manipulated, which means that the dentists can zoom in and alter the contrast of the images for a clearer, more accurate picture of what is happening in your mouth
  • They are immediate, which means we can pull your tooth x-rays up on the screen right next to you while you are in the dental chair and use them as a powerful educational tool

What about radiation?

Many patients are concerned about being exposed to radiation through dental x-rays. The great news is that modern dental x-rays are safe—even the traditional film x-rays—and expose you to only very low doses of radiation. As an example, it would take thousands of dental film x-rays to equal the amount of radiation you are exposed to in a single MRI; and digital x-rays expose you to even less radiation! Digital x-rays use less radiation than you’d be exposed to during one day in the sun.

Dr. Taylor, Dr. Martin, and their entire staff are the very best. The front desk staff, the dental assistants, and dental hygienists are excellent. I’ve been to many dentists over the years, and they are the most skilled and professional group of people that I have encountered. You can be confident you will be fully informed about what is recommended for a treatment plan and what it will cost. I’ve had the gamut of dental procedures — crowns, implants, root canals, and more routine care. It’s been made as pleasant and comfortable as possible by their skill, as well as their kindness and understanding. I wholeheartedly recommend Martin and Taylor Dentistry.

I have been a patient of Dr. Taylor’s for most of my adult hood. I have had everything done from a filling to multiple dental implants. All of my procedures have been straightforward with zero complications and as little discomfort as possible. Even after my implants I had minimal pain! Before I saw Dr. Taylor I was terrified of dentists, but he put me at ease with his expertise. The hygienists are kind, thorough but gentle, and knowledgeable. The office staff is very friendly and helpful. The office itself is modern and impeccably clean. I highly recommend Martin Tayler dentistry and won’t trust my teeth to any other dentists.
