To make your visit to Ford & Draper Dental a little safer while also treating and diagnosing you with the most advanced and accurate dental technology, our dentists, Dr. Jonathan Ford and Dr. Mary Draper, use digital X-rays in South Ogden, Utah. If you are in need of dental care, please give us a call today at 801-475-6500 for more information.

Digital X-rays are one of the advanced diagnostic tools we use to provide you with the best possible care. Digital radiography has changed the way we take dental X-rays by making the process faster, more comfortable and more convenient than ever before. Digital X-rays use a digital sensor to take images of your teeth, unlike traditional X-rays that use film. Digital X-rays use significantly less radiation than conventional film X-rays and require the use of no chemicals for developing the images. Our dentists can then instantly view the high-quality images on monitors right in the treatment room to provide you with efficient, accurate diagnoses and care. Our team is able to use digital radiography to identify and diagnose several types of dental problems, such as:

Decay in between teeth

Developmental abnormalities

Improper tooth root positioning

Cysts and abscesses

Fractures in existing fillings


Infection in the tooth nerves

Bone loss

Digital dental X-rays are used to plan many kinds of dental treatment, such as oral surgery procedures, root canal treatment, dental implants, orthodontics and more. To learn more about digital radiography and how we use X-rays at our office, we welcome you to call or visit us soon.
