X-rays are an essential part of any dental care treatment plan. We use a state-of-the-art, portable x-ray system (which uses less radiation than a traditional x-ray machine) to see inside a tooth, beneath the gums, and other areas not visible to the naked eye. Our ability to capture high-resolution images allows us to better assess the oral condition of our patients. X-rays are required for all new patient appointments unless radiographs taken within the previous six months by another provider are transferred to us in advance. Thereafter, x-rays are only required once a year or a schedule otherwise determined by the dentist.
