How can we help you?

Digital Dental X-Rays

When patients question the need for x-rays, they usually have one of two questions in mind:

Are they expensive? Are they safe?

We use digital dental x-rays to diagnose conditions such as decay and bone loss in our patients. By taking routine dental x-rays, we can monitor subtle changes over time and catch anything that may require our attention before it becomes serious.

Dental x-rays are not a catch-all when it comes to diagnosing dental conditions. They do, however, certainly help us make accurate diagnoses and alert you to anything you should be aware of in a more timely fashion so that we can address it while it is still small and manageable.

The cost of dental x-rays compared to major dental treatment is negligible. By making a small preventive investment in your health, you can save money in the long-term, not to mention time and hassle.

The safety of dental x-rays has always been high. Because we are taking images of your teeth, a very small part of your body, not much radiation is required. With the implementation of digital x-rays, we have decreased the levels of radiation by up to 90%, making them even safer. You can receive more radiation from the atmosphere when outdoors.
