At the dental office of Wendy Britt, we utilize advanced dental technology in order to provide you with the best possible dental care. Digital X-rays are one of the state-of-the-art imaging systems we use to provide diagnoses that are more accurate and efficient. Digital radiography uses digital sensors to capture high-quality images of your oral structures, including your teeth, jawbone and surrounding areas. Our dentist can then use these images to detect and diagnose dental problems that require treatment. If needed, Dr. Wendy Britt can expand the images and manipulate the contrast and other properties for a better view of your smile. Using digital radiography in Laurinburg, North Carolina, we can identify dental problems and conditions such as:

  • Bone loss
  • Infection in the tooth nerve
  • Tooth decay between teeth
  • Abscesses and cysts
  • Impacted teeth
  • Improper tooth root positions
  • Tumors
  • Developmental abnormalities

We also use digital X-rays to plan certain types of dental treatment. Digital X-rays have many advantages over traditional film X-rays. The process for taking digital X-rays is faster and utilizes significantly less radiation than is required for standard film X-rays. We invite you to call us today at 910-276-4550 to learn more about the benefits of digital radiography.
