At Joseph Rigg, DDS, our dental team is committed to offering our patients advanced dental technologies to improve our ability to take good care of your smile. Digital X-rays are a modern type of dental radiology and are an important type of diagnostic tool, allowing us to diagnose certain conditions and begin planning treatment. By using digital X-rays, we are able to capture multiple detailed images of your teeth, gums, and jaw. Digital X-rays use up to 80% less radiation than traditional dental X-rays to ensure the safety and health of your smile. We can also use digital X-rays to help you understand your smile, as the images are immediately available to review on our computer monitors. Dr. Joe Rigg, our expert dentist, may suggest digital X-rays to detect:

  • Tooth decay and tooth damage
  • Tumors or abscesses
  • Bone loss
  • Teeth that are growing improperly
  • Impacted wisdom teeth
  • Bite and alignment abnormalities
  • Hidden dental injuries

You will receive a full series of digital dental X-rays in Aberdeen, South Dakota when you first visit our office, during subsequent checkups, and whenever we may need a closer look at your smile to ensure it stays health. If you are due for a dental checkup, or would like to visit us for the first time, please contact us today to schedule your appointment. We look forward to serving your smile!
