To provide comprehensive dental care, we need to get the full picture. In addition to a thorough visual exam of your mouth and teeth, we use digital and panoramic x-rays to find out what’s going on behind the scenes. This advanced equipment gives the doctor instant access to the information he needs to determine treatment options while exposing you to less radiation than traditional x-rays. Our recommendations for x-ray type and frequency are based on ADA/FDA guidelines and risk assessments. We develop a personal risk assessment during patient exams, also relying on your preferential input. Dental health is a team sport and you, as a patient, are always a central part of the team.
