North Fort Myers Dentist Now Offers Digital X-rays For Greater Detail And Less Exposure

By: Gen Wright

CAPE CORAL, FL - Since 1985 James Holloway DDS has been working to provide quality dental care for patients in Cape Coral, FL, and in 2003 Dr. Allen Chumbler, insurance accepted dentist in Cape Coral, joined Dr. Holloway to open the North Fort Myers, FL location. Together Drs. Holloway and Chumbler, North Fort Myers dentists, are pleased to offer digital x-rays for greater detail and less exposure for their patients.

"Digital x-rays offer decreased radiation exposure, if any at all. Because many diseases of the teeth and surrounding tissues cannot be seen by the naked eye when examining a patient's mouth, digital x-rays can help reveal an array of problems including infections in the bone, gum disease, and more," said Dr. James Holloway, dentist in North Fort Myers and Cape Coral, FL.

Digital dental x-rays are pictures of the teeth, bones, and soft tissues around them to help find problems with the teeth, mouth, and jaw. Drs. Holloway and Chumbler, Cape Coral insurance accepted dentists, are pleased to offer digital x-rays, which utilize a small sensor unit to send pictures to a computer to be recorded and saved. Digital x-rays can show cavities, hidden dental structures, and bone loss that cannot be seen during a visual examination. They may also be done as a follow-up after dental treatments.

With this recent advancement in dentistry, Dr. Holloway, dentist in Cape Coral, FL, can now offer safer dental care with decreased radiation exposure and increased results. Many people require x-rays on a regular basis so that their dental condition can be monitored closely. Exactly how often this happens will depend on a patient's medical and dental history and current condition.

Some patients may need x-rays as often as every six months, while others may only need x-rays every couple years. In patients with no recent dental or gum disease, and who visit Drs. James Holloway and R. Allen Chumbler, Cape Coral cosmetic dentists, regularly for check-ups, x-rays may be taken only every five years or so.

For over 25 years, Dr. James Holloway, cosmetic dentist in Cape Coral, has been providing quality dental care for his community. With the use of digital dental x-rays, Dr. Holloway can further ensure accuracy and proper diagnosis when examining his patients' teeth.
