Digital X-Rays

Digital X-Rays

Digital X-Rays work by creating an image of the denser parts of your body, such as teeth and bone, revealing dental problems that may not be apparent to the naked eye but most importantly, it emits little to no radiation. Dr. Kaplan uses digital x-rays to detect and treat various disorders, such as cavities, infections, and decay, in their early stages.

Risks

Taking a digital X-ray takes just a few minutes and doesn't hurt. Minimal amounts of radiation are emitted in the process, as x-ray machines are strictly regulated by the FDA.

We use several types of x-rays in diagnosing dental problems, including:

  • Bitewing x-rays- check for decay between teeth and jaw misalignment
  • Periapical X-rays: Used to find problems in the jaw
  • Occlusal X-rays: Used to examine the roof or floor of the mouth

Depending on your age and level of dental health, the ADA recommends getting a dental x-ray between every 6 months and 3 years.
