Dental X-Rays

Dental radiographs (x-rays) are essential, preventative, diagnostic tools that provide valuable information not visible during a regular dental exam. Dentists and dental hygienists use this information to safely and accurately detect hidden dental abnormalities and complete an accurate treatment plan. Without x-rays, problem areas may go undetected.

Dental x-rays may reveal:

  • Abscesses or cysts
  • Bone loss
  • Cancerous and non-cancerous tumors
  • Decay between the teeth
  • Developmental abnormalities
  • Poor tooth and root positions
  • Problems inside a tooth or below the gum line

Detecting and treating dental problems at an early stage can save you time, money, unnecessary discomfort, and your teeth!

Are dental x-rays safe?

We are all exposed to natural radiation in our environment. The amount of radiation exposure from a full mouth series of x-rays is equal to the amount a person receives in a single day from natural sources.

Dental x-rays produce a low level of radiation and are considered safe. Dentists take necessary precautions to limit the guest’s exposure to radiation when taking dental x-rays. These precautions include using lead apron shields to protect the body and using modern, fast film that cuts down the exposure time of each x-ray.

How often should dental x-rays be taken?

The need for dental x-rays depends on each guest’s individual dental health needs. Your dentist and dental hygienist will recommend necessary x-rays based on the review of your medical and dental history, dental exam, signs and symptoms, age consideration, and risk for disease.

A full mouth series of dental x-rays is recommended for new guests. A full series is usually good for three to five years. Bite-wing x-rays (x-rays of top and bottom teeth biting together) are taken at recall (check-up) visits and are recommended once or twice a year to detect new dental problems.

COVID-19 SCHEDULE UPDATE

As we continue to monitor the rapidly changing landscape around the coronavirus (COVID-19), our primary goal is for the safety and well-being of our patients and team members.

In response to the recommendations from the American Dental Association and the North Carolina Dental Board, WE ARE OPEN for dental work deemed Emergency Care. Emergency care is defined as trauma, broken tooth, pain, swelling, or infection.

All other, non-emergency care will be scheduled for a later date.

We have made this decision for the health and safety of you and our team members,

If you believe you have a dental emergency, instead of going to your local hospital emergency room we would prefer you contact us in order to avoid overwhelming healthcare workers dealing with those suffering from the coronavirus.

In the event you have a dental emergency during this time, please call for an appointment OR schedule a virtual consultation to speak with a doctor from the comfort of your home.

We have teams in several locations prepared to treat dental emergencies.

We will update this schedule and availability as more information becomes available.

Our commitment is to provide urgent dental care in a clean, safe and efficient manner during this turbulent time.

We are available for you.

Stay safe and healthy and we’ll see you at the office again soon!
