Digital X-rays San Francisco
San Francisco dentist Dr. Chris Rodriguez believes that our patients’ health always comes first. This is why we now offer digital X-rays, a remarkable innovation in dental safety that allows a dentist to reduce the amount of radiation patients are exposed to with standard X-rays by up to 90 percent.
To take digital X-rays, we will place a very small camera into the mouth. As soon as the picture is taken, an image pops up on a nearby computer screen.
Intraoral Camera San Francisco
The intraoral camera is a real time-saver for both dentist and patient. Because they detect problems early on, the images taken by an intraoral camera can also save patients a significant amount of money in the long run. Please contact Rodriguez Dentistry today for more information on this wonderful instrument.

New adjunct methods of caries detection: lasers and transillumination
We believe that early and accurate diagnosis of tooth decay and fractures is key to proper care for our patients. In addition to digital X-rays and our thorough clinical exams, we have other technology that can help diagnose issues that are hard to detect on exam or unclear on X-rays.
Comfortable, Laser-Assisted Cavity Detection
The traditional way to detect tooth decay was by touching the surface of the teeth with a metal probe. If the metal probe stuck, that meant there was decay and a cavity that needed attention.
