There are three things you need to know about x-rays:
They are necessary to fully assess your oral health and needed treatment
They have come a long way in the past twenty years in both comfort and effectiveness, and
Our digital x-rays use ultra-low radiation (only 10% of conventional x-rays). They are safe
We only recommend x-rays as needed to properly assess your mouth and determine an exact course of treatment. These may include yearly check-up x-rays with a full-mouth series or panoramic x-rays every three to five years. If you have any questions about x-rays or our process, please ask us; we would be happy to talk with you.
