Dental X-rays Ottawa
Better dental health with technology
Parliament Hill Dental
It is, unfortunately, no surprise that problem in the mouth is formed in places we can not easily reach such as between teeth and under the gums. Our team uses x-rays to be able to see these hard to reach areas and inspect them in to catch and treat serious problems that could go unnoticed.
Parliament Hill Dental is proud to offer patients a digital radiography environment that has several benefits: minimal radiation exposure compared to traditional dental x-rays, our team can view the images directly on their computer screens, adjust it to focus on specific details, and we can share them over the internet with specialists who collaborate with our clinic.
When do we use digital x-rays at Parliament Hill Dental?
- Detection of new cavities
- Checking the inflammation of your gums
- Evaluating bone health
- Searching for early signs of gum disease
- Determining if you are a candidate for orthodontic appliances
- Diagnosing lesions such as cysts or tumours
- Assessing damage in case of trauma
Staying proactive with Dental X-rays
We recommend to our patients to have x-rays done at least once every 18 months, keeping some flexibility to adjust these intervals according to their specific needs. By doing systematic and regular radiologic follow-ups, we can detect problems as soon as they appear and well before they become more serious.
Dental x-rays represent an invaluable tool to facilitate the detection, diagnosis, treatment, and maintenance of good oral health. For your first visit at Parliament Hill Dental, our team will speak to you about the best time to schedule your next dental x-rays so you keep your mouth healthy for years to come.
Maintenance of Composite Fillings
Composite fillings require maintenance, therefore, practicing good oral hygiene, including daily brushing and flossing is key along with a well-balanced diet and minimal sugar intake. Being mindful of not biting into hard objects that can chip or cause damage to your composite filling is also very important. Coffee, tea, or red wine intake should also be kept to a minimum in order to prevent staining.
Contact Parliament Hill Dental today! Depending on your life habits, your composite filling could last anywhere from three to ten years before needing another repair or replacement.

People often prefer composite fillings instead of silver or metal fillings since they typically last longer, offer good durability and resistance and can be used on either the front or back teeth. They have now become the first choice of patients looking for natural-looking fillings because of their clear cosmetic benefits.
