One of the tools used at our dental clinic is a digital X-ray machine. Dr. Roger Anderson uses digital X-rays to capture high-quality, detailed images of your teeth and supporting oral structures. These images aid us in diagnosing and treating developing problems so that you can maintain a healthy smile. 

Digital X-rays are an advanced diagnostic tool, and have changed the way that dentists and other healthcare professionals take pictures. With digital imaging technology, we can now capture images of your mouth more quickly and comfortably, and in greater detail than ever before. Unlike traditional radiography, which relies on film and chemicals to capture and develop images, digital X-rays rely on a small digital sensor. This sensor captures images in just a few seconds, and can instantly display those images on monitors in the treatment room so that you can see what our team sees. Not only is this process faster and more comfortable, but it also produces significantly less radiation that conventional film X-rays, making your experience in our office safer. In fact, digital X-rays produce less radiation than what you are exposed to from the sun in your day-to-day life!

Dr. Roger Anderson uses digital X-rays to diagnose a variety of dental problems, including: 

  • Tooth decay 

  • Developmental abnormalities 

  • Improper or abnormal root positioning 

  • Cysts 

  • Abscesses 

  • Fractures in existing fillings or other restorations 

  • Tumors 

  • Infections in the tooth nerves 

  • Bone loss 


Digital X-rays are also used in planning and performing a variety of treatments with greater comfort and precision, including root canal treatment, implant placements and other oral surgical procedures.
