Digital X-rays Santa Rosa
Santa Rosa dentist Dr. Michael Rice offer digital X-rays, a remarkable innovation in dental safety that allows dentists to reduce the amount of radiation you are exposed to by up to 90 percent compared to traditional dental x-rays. To take digital X-rays, our trained Santa Rosa Dental staff will place a very small, postage stamp-sized sensor in your mouth. As soon as the x-ray is taken, a sharp image appears on our computer screen. You will be able to instantly view your own x-rays, and Santa Rosa dentist Dr. Michael Rice will use that digital image to thoroughly explain your oral health.
Intraoral Camera Santa Rosa
Our intraoral camera is an excellent diagnostic and educational tool. Given the small space and difficult angles, dentists can’t see every corner of your mouth– and you can barely see any of it! With an intraoral camera, Santa Rosa dentist Dr. Michael Rice check all sides of each tooth for decay, fractures, and other problems. They take images of all areas of concern, then take the time to review these images with you to explain your oral health and any possible treatment options.
