Digital Dental X-Rays in San Jose

Diagnosing and Treating Key Dental Issues

During your regular dental checkups, we will provide oral exams to watch out for ongoing oral health issues like inflammation, bleeding, periodontal pockets, and tartar buildup. We use the skilled eyes of our dental team, and we also have access to highly advanced X-rays that take high quality images. The X-rays are able to accurately show the condition of the teeth, roots, jaw placement, and facial bone position. X-rays give us insight into issues that might not be visible to the naked eye.
