The importance of Dental X-rays

Schedule a dental exam today!

Dental x-rays are needed when you are added as a new patient and ongoing every 6-18 months, depending on the your particular needs. X-rays help us find hidden dental decay, impacted teeth, show bone loss, cysts, abscesses and more.

Our office uses digital X-rays, which have several advantages of traditional X-rays. For instance,:

  • Less Radiation: Digital X-ray provide an 80% reduction in radiation
  • More Comfortable for You: Biting the paper tab used in taking traditional X-rays can be uncomfortable and push up against your mouth in awkward ways. Digital X-rays work differently by putting a small sensor in your mouth connected by a thin wire to a computer. X-rays are sent out to the sensor through your teeth to capture the image. The sensor can be moved to take other images. 
  • Quick Developing: Typically they are ready in as short of a time as 3 seconds.
  • Magnified Images: Digital X-rays are easily displayed at larger sizes. We are even able to magnify the image to show you close up any tooth decay or abnormalities.
  • Earth Friendly: Digital X-rays are electronic so they save us from needing to use chemicals or film. They also make processing insurance claims faster.
X-rays are an important part of your dental visit, because they help us diagnose problems we can’t see on the surface. Digital X-rays are just one way we are working to make your visits better.
Have a great day!
