When you visit Dr. J. Steve Morton’s office for your dental cleaning, we will take multiple X-rays of your teeth, jaws, and bite. As part of our commitment to using the most advanced dental technology in a gentle, caring environment, we have outfitted our dental office with the latest dental X-ray technology, known as digital radiography. Digital X-rays use electronic sensors to immediately capture and store high-quality digital images of your smile. With digital dental X-rays in Sevierville, Tennessee, our dental team can detect:

  • Tooth decay hidden to the unaided eye
  • Cysts, abscesses, and tumors
  • Bone loss
  • Infection inside of the tooth
  • Developmental abnormalities
  • Misalignment in your bite
  • Fractures or cracks in existing fillings

Taking digital X-rays is faster, easier, and more comfortable than having traditional dental X-rays taken. Another benefit is that digital X-rays emit up to 80% less radiation than traditional dental X-rays. Because the images from digital X-rays can be viewed instantly on our monitors, our dental team can detect any developing problems or abnormalities more efficiently than ever before. We are able to use digital X-rays to help our skilled dentist and dental team identify and diagnose conditions, plan more effective dental treatments, and keep your smile shining. To learn more about the benefits of digital X-rays, we encourage you to schedule your appointment with our office. We look forward to starting you on the road to better oral health.
