Digital x-rays are just one of the preventative dentistry services we offer to help you maintain a healthy smile.
During your routine dental checkup, we may take teeth x-rays so we can catch cavities and gum disease in their early stages. Our Grand Rapids dentist uses x-rays to help prevent oral health issues and plan treatment. For example, we’ll take dental pictures while planning orthodontic treatment or tooth extraction.
We take a panoramic x-ray every 5 years so we can get a full picture of what is happening with your teeth, gums, and jaws. A panoramic x-ray is different from the other types of dental x-rays we do because it shows us your entire mouth in one image.
Benefits of Digital X-Rays
Dental x-rays are completely safe. In fact, digital dental x-rays expose you to significantly less radiation that their traditional film counterparts. We take every precaution to make sure you are protected from radiation. While taking most dental images, we’ll have you wear a lead apron so you are protected from the small levels of radiation.
Digital x-rays show us your entire mouth in one image!
