A lot of people prefer to visit a dentist who has the latest technology in his or her office. They know that having advanced technology shows the dentist is committed to providing the most comfortable experience possible, while also providing the highest quality services possible.
One piece of technology we are particularly proud of having at Almond Dental is the Panorex panoramic x-ray machine. Here are just some of the ways this equipment benefits our patients.
Why Panoramic X-Rays are Important
Traditional x-rays only provide a dentist with a close-up version of a patient’s teeth. A panoramic x-ray, on the other hand, delivers a detailed view of the patient’s mouth as well as the head and neck areas. Panoramic x-rays do a great job of alerting a dentist to issues such as gum disease or cavities. But they can also potentially save a patient’s life.
The reason is that they can alert a dentist to possibly serious health issues affecting the jawbone or nearby tissue. It will show abnormalities that could potentially indicate cancer or some other severe disease. Panoramic x-rays also show issues such as cysts and other types of alarming growths.
As you already know, early detection is key to surviving cancer and other serious health issues. A panoramic x-ray can spot a minor issue before it turns into a potentially life-threatening problem.
Almond Dental has the Panorex x-ray machine and several other pieces of high-tech equipment.
