Do I really need dental x-rays?

Are you wondering if you really need dental x-rays? It’s a common question for many patients, as x-rays are an important part of preventive dental care.

Dental x-rays allow your dentist to check for potential problems that may not be visible during a routine dental exam. In addition to helping diagnose cavities and other dental issues, x-rays can help your dentist determine the best course of treatment.

At our dental office, we believe it’s important to keep up with regular dental x-rays. X-rays provide valuable information about the health of your teeth, gums, and jaws that can’t be seen with a visual inspection alone. For example, x-rays can reveal issues such as decay between the teeth or in the root of a tooth, or abscesses or cysts in the jawbone. They can also detect bone loss due to periodontal disease.

The frequency of dental x-rays depends on your specific dental health needs. Some patients may need x-rays more often than others. If you have a history of cavities or gum disease, your dentist may recommend more frequent x-rays. Additionally, your dentist may recommend x-rays to monitor the progress of treatments such as orthodontics.

At our office, we use digital x-ray technology, which is a safe and effective way to get diagnostic images. Digital x-rays produce images with less radiation than traditional film x-rays. Our digital x-ray machine also has a built-in sensor that automatically adjusts the amount of radiation needed for each image, so you can rest assured that your radiation exposure is kept as low as possible.  

Dental x-rays are an important part of preventive dental care, and can help keep your mouth healthy and your smile looking great.

I been coming to Dental Arts for a few years and was a skeptical about returning since my regular hygienist had moved on but my experience was super. I was knowledge right of way as I entered the office, making me feel welcomed. Jannette was down to earth , I feel I like knew her already. She did a fantastic job with the cleaning. The entire team was fantastic.

I can't quite put into words how satisfied I am with my service care at Dental Arts of Pelham. The multi-level excellence demonstrated at this office is unmatched. From the warmth and level of expertise at the front desk to my dental assessment and services, I was very pleased all the way through. Noteworthy to mention is Marline's impeccable service. She was reassuring and knowledgable about my insurance and provided me the ease I needed at the end of my visit. 10/10 recommend this office to anyone who is looking!
