Dental professionals use many technologies and tools, including the use of dental x-rays which have been beneficial in dental care for several decades.  Detecting damage and disease not visible to the unaided eye during a regular dental exam are just two examples of their usefulness.

The frequency of X-rays should take into consideration your present oral health, your age, your risk for disease, and any signs and symptoms of oral disease.

Dental X-ray tools and techniques are designed to help protect the body from exposure to radiation; and, every precaution is taken to ensure that radiation exposure is As Low As Reasonable Achievable (the ALARA principle).

A woman who is pregnant should always inform any dental professional so the professional can take that information into consideration in regard to the need for x-rays in your treatment.

Digital X-Rays are a gratifying technological advancement for dental professionals and patients.  This method is an innovation which substantially reduces your exposure to radiation from x-rays, making your visit easier, faster, and safer.

Whether your need is cosmetic dentistry or dental implants, this technology serves you well by:

  • Eliminating the need to use certain chemicals in the office
  • Making images easy to store on the computer as well as easily available for quickly duplication for insurance company claims and other records
  • Producing images that are instantly available to you and your dentist (and easier to see)
  • Providing an increased amount of diagnostics to help your dentist identify problem areas earlier
  • Reducing radiation exposure to the patient (and professional) by up to 90% as compared with traditional film-based x-rays
