    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.
