Dental X-Rays

We use digital x-rays to provide our patients with a safe, accurate examination.

What we look for on dental x-rays:

  • 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!

How often should dental x-rays be taken?

X-rays are taken depending on your individual needs.  Typically, bite wing x-rays are taken at your hygiene appointment once per year to check for decay and bone loss.  Panoramic films are taken every 3-5 years to check other areas of your head and neck that are not shown on bite wing films.  Occasionally, an additional film called a periapical, or PA, is needed to examine a specific area.
