There’s nothing more important than having your child feel comfortable in our dentist’s chair, and that is one reason why Planet Dental uses digital X-rays in Laredo, Texas. High-quality, high-tech equipment gives Dr. Labbe, Dr. Staat, and associates a clearer, more accurate and complete picture of your child’s mouth and facial structure. We feel using these X-rays will ensure better diagnosis and spot even the smallest or hidden dental issue.

Digital X-rays are one of the advanced diagnostic tools we use to provide you with the best possible care. This type of X-ray is safer to use than traditional types, producing 80-90% less radiation, and they require no chemicals in order to develop images. Digital radiography has revolutionized the way we take dental X-rays by making the process quicker, more comfortable, and more convenient than ever before. Digital X-rays use a digital sensor to take images of your teeth, while traditional X-rays use film. This allows our dentist to instantly view these high-quality images on monitors right in the treatment room, giving you an accurate diagnosis in a shorter amount of time. Our team is able to use digital X-rays to identify and diagnose several types of dental problems, including:

  • Decay in between teeth
  • Developmental abnormalities
  • Improper tooth root positioning
  • Cysts and abscesses
  • Fractures in existing fillings
  • Tumors
  • Infection in the tooth nerves
  • Bone loss

We may also use digital dental radiography to plan certain kinds of dental treatments, such as oral surgical procedures, root canal therapy, dental implants and more.
