Digital radiography is a safe, valuable technological tool that allows Dr. Berkvam and her dental team to help you achieve optimal oral health. Digital X-rays use an electronic sensor to capture and store digital images, giving our Smiles of Kansas City Dental Center dentist and staff instant access to your X-ray images. Digital radiography is helpful in discovering and diagnosing dental problems that may have otherwise gone unnoticed. Digital X-rays can help Dr. Berkvam detect:

  • Decay between teeth
  • Cysts and abscesses
  • Problems in the root canal, such as infection of the nerve
  • Bone loss
  • Cracks or damage in existing fillings
  • Developmental abnormalities
  • Cancerous and non-cancerous tumors

Digital radiography is also useful in helping Dr. Berkvam plan, prepare, and place dental implants and other treatments. We are proud to offer digital X-ray services at our Kansas City, Missouri office. We welcome you to contact us to learn more about the benefits of digital radiography!
