Kwok gets a closer, more detailed look at his patients’ teeth.
Digital X-rays use less radiation than traditional film x rays and require no chemicals to develop the images making it easier to detect cavities and gaps! We provide efficient care, getting accurate diagnoses quickly so you know the state of your teeth immediately without having any unnecessary pain associated with treatment plans.
Several types of dental problems can be detected with digital x-rays such as:

- Improper tooth alignment
- Cysts and abscesses
- Abnormal growth such as oral cancer
- Fractures in existing fillings
- Infection in the tooth nerves
- Bone loss
Digital dental X-rays are used to plan many kinds of dental treatment, such as oral surgery procedures, root canal treatment, dental implants, orthodontics and more.
