Dental radiographs, also known as x-rays, are used as a diagnostic tool to diagnose cavities in between the teeth. Often times, taking x-rays are the only way to see interproximal cavities. Dental x-rays can also help determine your child’s risk potential for future cavities.
Using the most advanced dental technology possible is just as important as staying up-to-date on the latest treatment techniques. Because our practice is dedicated to providing you with the safest and most convenient treatment options available, we utilize advanced digital X-ray technology in our office.
Digital X-rays provide several advanced imaging options designed to save time, provide clearer dental photos, and expose patients up to 90% less radiation than traditional X-ray technology.
Safety precautions such as lead aprons and thyroid collars help to reduce exposure. Because of the benefits of dental x-rays, it is recommended to take x-rays at least once a year.
Our practice is focused on making your dental experience as comfortable as possible. At your next appointment, we'll be happy to answer any questions you may have.
