X-rays

Dental x-rays are essential diagnostic tools that provide information that is not visible during a regular dental exam.  X-rays can reveal hidden decay, bone loss due to periodontal disease, abcesses or cysts, developmental abnormalities, and many other potential issues. Detecting and treating dental issues at an early stage can save you time, money, potential discomfort and your teeth!

Reasons to take dental x-rays

The frequency that we take x-rays is customized to each patient's dental needs.  Someone with no or few fillings can go longer intervals between check-up (bite wing) x-rays compared to someone with many fillings and recent new cavities.  In all cases we try to follow the principles of ALARA (As Low As Reasonably Achievable) to keep your exposure to a minimum.  We also utilize digital x-rays, which reduce exposure by 60 - 70 % compared with traditional x-ray film.
