Dental X-Rays

What Are Dental X-Rays?

An X-ray is a diagnostic tool used in conjunction with a clinical exam that allows us to see your teeth in 2D or even 3D. Our dental X-rays are all digital and use a minimal amount of radiation; about as much as a 12-second phone call. They are safe for patients of all ages. You can have them done conveniently, right here in our office.

Why Are Dental X-Rays Needed?

X-rays will show us if there are cavities between the teeth, a very common area of dental decay. They also allow us to see the roots of the teeth and if there is any infection. We take X-rays at your routine dental exam appointments as a way for us to monitor and keep a tab on your oral health. You may need to have X-rays taken before a particular procedure, like oral surgery or dental implant placement. We take X-rays on an as-needed basis to create a treatment plan that is specific to your needs.

What Happens When Dental X-Rays Are Taken?

Our trained staff will place a small sensor inside the mouth and align the X-ray machine to it. The necessary images are taken and immediately transposed to our computer screens. Sometimes, a panoramic x-ray (pictured above) is needed to capture all of the teeth at once or to see your wisdom teeth. You simply stand still and the machine rotates slowly around, capturing all the information we need.

Our office is equipped with the latest in X-ray and diagnostic technology. Schedule an appointment by calling or texting us at (972) 646-0660 or by filling out our contact form.
