Digital X-Ray

Our natural environment exposes us to all kinds of radiation. Digital x-rays produce a significantly lower level of radiation compared to older methods. Not only are digital x-rays faster and better for your health, they are also more comfortable. For our new patients, we generally recommend a full mouth series and bitewing x-rays. These are a good reference for 3-5 years and are usually taken after your check-up and cleaning.

5 reasons for taking X-Rays:

  1. To look for decay in between teeth
  2. To check for the bone loss associated with gum disease
  3. To check for decay under older fillings
  4. To see if there are signs of infection at the very bottom of the tooth root
  5. To examine a problem area before it is treated with a procedure
