One of the most important parts of your initial visit to our office is having a series of dental X-rays taken. A dental X-ray allows us to get a full vision of your smile and see what is going on in areas not visible to the unassisted eye, like inside of your teeth and underneath the gumline. Taking a dental X-ray is comfortable, quick, and easy. Dr. Howe and Dr. Dugan, our skilled dentists, will use dental X-rays in Salem, Oregon to detect:

  • Bone loss
  • Development deviations
  • Abscesses
  • Tumors
  • Tooth decay
  • Advanced periodontal disease
  • Improperly growing teeth
  • Bite and alignment issues

Early detection is important in treating many oral health issues. By using dental X-rays, we are able to diagnose conditions before they become more serious, allowing our caring dental team to provide efficient and minimally invasive care. The longer a condition goes undetected, the greater the chances are that you will need more serious, involved treatment. At Riverfront Dental LLC, we work hard to ensure your smile is routinely examined so you can continually have a positive dental experience. If it is time to schedule a visit with one of our dentists, we encourage you to call and speak with a member of our friendly dental team today.
