To help detect a number of dental conditions, our dentist may take a series of X-rays as part of their regular visits. Dental X-rays are very safe and can reveal several dental issues, such as tooth decay, bone loss, developmental abnormalities, and more. Peter Lo Destro DDS PC has chosen to use digital X-rays because they produce up to 90% less radiation than traditional film radiography. We also take additional steps to ensure your safety, providing a special thyroid collar when taking images to prevent any exposure and degradation. For more information about how we use dental X-rays in Yorkville, Illinois, and Aurora, Illinois, we invite you to call us at 630-553-3222 and schedule an appointment with Dr. Peter Lo Destro.
