Get to the Bottom of it – with X-Rays!

Dental radiographs (X-rays) are excellent diagnostic tools that provide information that isn’t evident during a typical dental exam. Dentists and dental hygienists use this information to uncover concealed dental issues and create an exact treatment plan in a safe and accurate manner.  Problem areas may be undiscovered without X-rays, which is why we recommend x-rays for most patients.

Are Dental X-Rays Safe?

Radiation occurs naturally in our everyday lives, and we’re constantly exposed to it. And, according to the American Dental Association (ADA), x-ray exposure from dentistry only makes up a small portion of the total exposure we experience. This includes both the natural and man-made radiation we come into contact with.

When taking dental X-rays, our experienced and certified clinicians take all appropriate steps to reduce the patient’s exposure to radiation. These safeguards include the use of lead apron shields to protect the body and the use of contemporary, rapid film that reduces the X-ray exposure duration.  Our staff will make sure to accommodate your requests, answer your concerns, and follow all radiation safety requirements.
