Digital X-Rays

We often make X-rays part of your visit to Advocate Dental of Palatine. Our dentists and team can learn a great deal about your oral health, and they can use this information to make diagnoses and create treatment options. At our office, we use digital X-rays in Palatine, Illinois, which are safer and more comfortable than traditional X-rays. To schedule your appointment with Dr. George Skoog or Dr. Alla Shtilman, call our office at 847-359-8732 and speak with a member of our team.

Digital X-rays are one of the advanced diagnostic tools we use to provide you with the best possible care. Digital radiography has changed the way we take dental X-rays by making the process faster, more comfortable and more convenient than ever before. Digital X-rays use a digital sensor to take images of your teeth, unlike traditional X-rays that use film.

Digital X-rays use significantly less radiation than conventional film X-rays and require the use of no chemicals for developing the images. Our dentists can then instantly view the high-quality images on monitors right in the treatment room to provide you with efficient, accurate diagnoses and care. Our team is able to use digital radiography to identify and diagnose several types of dental problems, such as:

  • Decay in between teeth
  • Developmental abnormalities
  • Improper tooth root positioning
  • Cysts and abscesses
  • Fractures in existing fillings
  • Tumors
  • Infection in the tooth nerves
  • Bone loss

Digital dental X-rays are used to plan many kinds of dental treatment, such as oral surgery procedures, root canal treatment, dental implants, orthodontics and more. To learn more about digital radiography and how we use X-rays at our office, we welcome you to call or visit us soon.

Patient Reviews

Dr. Skoog is very dedicated to his work and the well-being of his patients. On two different circumstances he was able to squeeze me in when he had a fully booked day. He is very good with understanding a patient’s apprehension of dentists. 🙂

- Sandy S.

So appreciative to Dr. Skoog for taking care of my husband’s terrible toothache during the holiday season. We are not patients of Dr. Skoog as we live out of state. He stayed late on a Saturday to alleviate my husband’s pain. We can’t thank him enough! Highly recommend.

- Ann M.

Great care! The office is usually on time or early. Dr Skoog is very good and offers a lot of services eliminating the need to go to multiple providers which saves time. All staff is professional and friendly as well they make you feel like your their close friend.
