Phoenix, AZ (PRWEB) August 25, 2014
Phoenix dentist, Dr. Han Christy, is now offering complimentary dental X-rays for new patients. Dental X-rays are images that reveal the teeth, bones and soft tissues of the oral cavity to diagnose problems that cannot be seen with the unaided eye. This special includes complimentary dental X-rays for new patients, who can then work with Dr. Christy to create a treatment plan that addresses any diagnosed problems.
Dental X-rays are commonly performed at an initial dental appointment to provide Dr. Christy, Phoenix dental emergency care provider, with more in-depth information about a patient’s dental health needs, but they may also be performed at routine checkups, before orthodontic treatment, before endoscopic treatment and before creating treatment plans for other dental diseases. Several types of X-rays are available, including:
- Bitewing X-rays, which are often used to identify tooth decay, gum disease or infection
- Periapical X-rays, which may be used to identify abscesses, impactions, oral tumors and bone abnormalities
- Panoramic X-rays, which offer a more extensive view of the jaws, teeth and jaw joints and reveal fractures, impactions, abnormalities and tumors
Digital X-rays can be viewed almost immediately and provide Dr. Christy, Phoenix orthodontics expert, with more options in preparing treatment plans and identifying problems that may not be easily seen on traditional dental X-rays. Most adults should have dental X-rays every two to three years. Children, teens and patients who are at an increased risk of dental disease may need to have dental X-rays every six to 12 months. Dr. Christy is committed to always “putting the patients’ needs first,” and he will work to ensure patient satisfaction at every stage of the treatment process.
