Digital X-Rays Allow Us To See The Teeth More Clearly
Dental Care of Corona is always trying to improve the way we perform dentistry. By introducing digital radiography (X-rays) into our practice, we strive to provide a better dental experience for our patients. The introduction of this technology provides many benefits above and beyond traditional X-ray methods.
Digital x-rays are a necessity when precautionary diagnostic methods that can provide important details cannot be seen during a typical dental exam. Dental Care of Corona utilizes x-rays and their results carefully to identify and accurately diagnose hidden problems to provide the exact treatment required.
