People who go to the dentist every six months know that the way x-rays are taken has changed dramatically. Years ago you would have x-rays taken and you’d have to wait for the film to be developed before the dentist could tell you what was going on in your mouth with your teeth and your gums. If that’s the way it was done the last time you went to the dentist, it’s been way too long since you’ve seen your local dentist. You should make an appointment with Dr. Phil Iffland and come in for Canton digital dental x-rays.
What’s the difference between old fashioned dental x-rays and Canton digital dental x-rays? Digital x-rays are available to the dentist immediately. They can be seen right on the computer screen in Dr. Iffland’s office so that he can point out any problems that are brewing in your teeth and under your gums. Catching problems while they’re small will not only save you time in the dental chair, but it will save you or your dental insurance company money as well.
This new dental technology is important in the fight against tooth decay as well as periodontal disease. When Dr. Iffland spots a cavity when it’s just tiny, he can remove the small amount of decay and fill it for you before the problem needs an inlay or onlay. And when it comes to detecting periodontal disease, digital x-rays will show any bone deterioration as soon as it happens so that steps can be taken to get rid of the problem before it can destroy your jawbone.
In addition to the new Canton digital dental x-rays being ready in minutes, they produce between 60%-80% less radiation than the dental x-rays used years ago. That means both you and the dental office staff will have less exposure to radiation, and that’s a good thing. So call Dr. Iffland’s office today at 330-478-0019 and make an appointment for a checkup.
