When you regularly visit South Chico Dental Care for dental exams and dental cleanings, we will spend time updating your medical history and discussing any changes you might have noticed with your teeth and gums. Sometimes changes occur because of stress, pregnancy, medication, or even conditions such as diabetes.

Dental x-rays can assist in this diagnosis. Whether we are taking bitewings on your five-year-old child to look for decay or taking a full mouth series on a senior patient to determine bone levels when planning for a dental implant, your dental x-rays are an important part of monitoring your oral health.

Because of advancements in digital technology, we can store these images in your electronic chart and call them up quickly for comparison from one appointment to the next.
