With being a Holistic and biological dental office, we understand our patients concerns about dental x-rays. The digital images (x-rays) that we will take on you are digital, which means they are 90% less radiation for you and our staff. We will still cover your thyroid and chest while taking your images. We will see the images on our computer screen allowing the Doctor to look for cysts, abscesses and cancer formation, decay between the teeth, periodontal disease and bone loss, poor tooth and root positions and problems inside a tooth or below the gum line.
We do require a full set of digital images on every new patient. On our current patients, we do take the bite-wing images on each side every year.
Please understand that we are here to help you maintain your overall dental health and keep your teeth for a lifetime.
