Regular examinations by Michael J. Wockenfus, DDS are very important for your health. Remember, "An ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure." –Benjamin Franklin
Dental x-rays are a primary tool for early identification of dental problems. Your Menasha dentist can detect issues with x-rays before they become problems, saving you money in the long run by preventing the need for more expensive procedures or surgeries. X-rays are primarily used to detect internal tooth decay, cysts (fluid filled sacks at the base of your teeth), tumors, impacted teeth, and teeth that are still erupting.
In addition to taking pictures of your mouth, the intraoral camera also has special software that enables us to more closely examine certain areas of your mouth. We can zoom in on suspect areas and enhance the images for better clarity. This, along with many other features, allows us to see even the smallest details of your mouth so that we can provide you with more accurate diagnoses and much more effective treatment plans to help you maintain optimal oral health.
