Kirkland, WA dentist uses digital x-rays for dental evaluations

Digital X-ray Dental in Kirkland Area

Kirkland, WA patients who visit Kingsgate Dental may find that Dr. Ann Kelley has invested into her practice to offer the best possible care and attention. This includes using digital x-rays. Our dentist uses digital x-rays to ensure precision evaluations and allow for accurate diagnosis of dental conditions.

What are digital x-rays?

Digital x-rays are photographs that are taken which allow a dentist to evaluate a patient’s oral health well beyond the teeth that are visible over the gumline. This technology allows Dr. Ann Kelley and her team to effectively and accurately find oral health concerns that may need attention. Digital dental x-ray technology is one of the best advancements that have become available and allow patients to reduce their exposure to radiation. In addition, digital x-rays can be viewed almost instantly while producing high-quality images that can be zoomed in for closer definition.

Why are dental x-rays important?

Your oral health is more than just the teeth and gums. The foundation of your smile also needs to stay healthy to ensure teeth do not become loose or lost. Additionally, many conditions that are diagnosed happen within the tooth or beyond where the eyes can see. This is why x-rays are utilized by dentists to look for signs of tooth decay or periodontal disease. One of the most important aspects of oral health and wellness is preventative care, which is why dentists will routinely take x-rays when patients visit the practice.


What are the benefits of digital x-rays?

Digital x-rays have many advantages. They:

  • Emit much less radiation than conventional x-rays
  • Provide immediate images for evaluation
  • Use digital information which allows the dentist to zoom in on photos
  • Ensure precision diagnosis of conditions such as tooth decay and periodontal disease
  • Are a key component to quality dental examinations

 - 5 Star Rating Review I have gone to Kingsgate Dental for about two years now, and every experience has been excellent. Dr. Kelley is very knowledgeable and very thorough with her analysis of the issues that I have faced with my teeth. The staff is polite and always happy to answer any questions that I have and give me pointers to improve my dental hygiene. I will continue to go to Kingsgate Dental/Dr Kelley for years to come.

 - 5 Star Rating Review By Kathy W Dr. Kelley and her staff are a treasure. State of the art equipment, As a past Dental Administrator for a very large practice in Lynnwood, am soo happy to know that Dr. Kelley, her hygenists who have been there for over 20 years, are bar none the most indepth and through a cleaning as you would ever find. I have never felt more then a slight prick when getting novocaine. Between numbing the gum and gentle procedure they also offer nitroux, for us real scaredy cats. Music, neck pillows and blankets all make the experience truly enjoyable. I had gone too many years neglecting my teeth and found through Tammy, my hygenist and Dr. Kelley they were able to put together a plan to save the teeth they could and design partials for the ones I could not afford to save. I am a small business owner with no insurance and yet they came up with a plan that I am so happy with. I am without any infection, so much healthier and the partials Dr. Kelley designed are like a second skin. From Jackie and MaryAnn at the front desk to the assistants, hygenists and Dr. Kelley you will be in professional and caring hands. I recommend to all my family and friends.
