Digital X-Rays – Safe, Effective, and Accurate
Dr. Tom Supakorndej uses digital X-rays to closely examine your teeth and supporting structures for signs of dental problems. Digital X-rays help our dentist to examine areas of your mouth that are not visible to the naked eye.
Using digital X-rays, it is now safer, faster, and easier to capture high-quality images of your teeth and supporting structures. Unlike film radiography, digital X-rays do not require any toxic chemicals to develop the images, and the radiation output is reduced 80-90% to give you a completely safe treatment.

Digital X-rays changed the way that dentists everywhere take pictures of the inside of your mouth. By using digital sensors, we can capture high-quality images in a matter of seconds. These images are then projected directly onto monitors or screens in the treatment room so that you can see what our dentist sees. This makes it easier for you to understand your oral health and make decisions about your treatments.
Digital X-rays are extremely helpful in diagnosing a wide variety of dental problems, including:
- Tooth decay
- Fractures in teeth or fillings
- Infection in tooth nerves
- Bone loss
- Incorrect tooth root positioning
- Developmental abnormalities
X-rays are also used in planning treatments. Common treatments that this technology aids in include root canal therapy, implant placement, and other surgical procedures.
