Low-Radiation Digital X-rays
In addition to being faster than conventional X-rays, digital X-rays also emit significantly less radiation and require no sharp X-ray film. With just a few small digital sensors, our Overland Park dental team can get a clear and precise view of your teeth, sinuses, and upper and lower jaws. Digital X-rays are much safer because of their reduced radiation, meaning it can be used on just about everybody. They are also available very quickly, meaning faster appointments.
Our intraoral camera is a small diagnostic tool that allows Dr. Gallagher to give you a virtual tour of your mouth! Images of the interior of your mouth are transmitted instantly from the camera to the computer screen, so you can see what we see during your exam. We want you to feel informed every step of the way so you can make smart choices for your oral health. Your comfort is our number one priority, and when you are fully informed, you will feel comfortable for the whole course of your treatment. Not only does educated decisions make for a more pleasant dental experience, they also help you in the future, knowing what to expect in recovery and how to maintain your smile.
