Dental X-rays IN HIALEAH, FL

Dental x-rays are a vital tool in diagnosing and treating dental problems. At LA Family Dentistry, we use the latest digital x-ray technology to provide our patients with safe, effective, and accurate dental x-rays.

Dental x-rays are used to capture images of the teeth, gums, and jawbone, which can help identify dental problems that may not be visible to the naked eye. These problems may include cavities, gum disease, bone loss, and impacted teeth.

Digital x-rays offer several advantages over traditional film x-rays. They produce high-quality images with significantly less radiation exposure than film x-rays, making them a safer and more environmentally friendly option. Digital x-rays are also faster and more efficient than film x-rays, allowing our dental professionals to quickly and accurately diagnose dental problems and develop personalized treatment plans.
