Advanced Dental X-Ray Technology for Accurate Diagnostics

Dental X-Rays


At Foothills Family Dental, we incorporate state-of-the-art dental X-ray technology in our Fort Collins, CO 80524 office. Our commitment to utilizing the latest advancements in dental imaging aids us in providing precise diagnostics and effective treatment planning for our patients.

The Importance of Dental X-Rays

Dental X-rays are a vital component of dental care, offering invaluable insights into your oral health. They allow our dentists to detect issues that are not visible during a standard oral examination, such as early signs of decay, impacted teeth, jawbone damage, and more.

Types of Dental X-Rays

We offer various types of dental X-rays to cater to different diagnostic needs:

  • Bitewing X-Rays: Ideal for detecting cavities between teeth.
  • Panoramic X-Rays: Provide a comprehensive view of the entire mouth, including the jaws, teeth, and sinuses.
  • Periapical X-Rays: Focus on two complete teeth from root to crown.
  • Cone Beam Computed Tomography (CBCT): Offers 3D imaging for complex diagnoses and treatment planning.

Safety and Comfort

Patient safety is paramount at Foothills Family Dental. Our digital X-ray technology significantly reduces radiation exposure compared to traditional X-rays. Additionally, the process is quick and painless, ensuring patient comfort.

How Often Should You Have Dental X-Rays?

The frequency of dental X-rays depends on your individual oral health needs. Our team will recommend a schedule based on factors like age, dental history, and current oral health condition.

Dental X-Rays and Overall Treatment Planning
