Concerns About Dental X-Rays

Some of our patients have voiced concerns regarding dental X-rays. Their concerns may involve anything from exposure to cost. Keep in mind that we only make X-rays when they are necessary for proper diagnosis and/or treatment. We take them during your cleaning appointment to diagnose problems early.

Early diagnosis enables us to treat small problems before they become big ones, and hopefully to avoid painful situations. In addition, most insurance companies require X-rays before payment will be made on most procedures. The exposure rate for dental X-rays is minimal.

If you have concerns, please let us know. We will be happy to discuss them with you. Remember, you chose us to provide you with the best dental care. There will be times that an X-ray will b necessary to give you what you have come to expect from us: quality dental care!
