Dr. Nicholas D. Esplin and our team are committed to staying up to date with all of the latest dental technology and techniques to ensure that we provide the highest possible level of care. One of the state-of-the-art diagnostic tools we use is digital radiography. Digital X-rays use a digital sensor rather than traditional X-ray film to capture high-definition images of your teeth, jawbone, and surrounding structures. Our dentist then uses these images to assess your oral health. With digital X-rays, we are able to detect dental problems such as:

  • Abnormal tooth root positions
  • Tooth decay between teeth
  • An infected tooth nerve
  • Fracturing in an existing dental filling
  • Developmental irregularities
  • Bone loss
  • Tumors (cancerous and non-cancerous)
  • Impacted teeth
  • Cysts and abscesses

Many of these conditions may be difficult or even impossible to detect with the unaided eye, making digital imaging an essential tool in fully analyzing your oral health. We also use digital radiography in Vacaville, California, to plan several types of treatment, including root canal therapy, TMJ treatment, Invisalign®, and dental implants. We welcome you to call or visit our office today to learn more about digital X-rays and the other advanced technology we use to enhance your dental experience. We are eager to care for you!
