Digital X-Rays
Call us: (718) 584-5300

We are committed to delivering the highest quality care in the safest way possible. For this reason we utilize digital x-rays. This technique uses computer sensors instead of conventional film. This lowers the radiation needed by 70-80%

Dental radiographs (x-rays) are essential, preventative, diagnostic tools that provide valuable information not visible during a regular dental exam. Dentists and dental hygienists use this information to safely and accurately detect hidden dental abnormalities and complete an accurate treatment plan. Without x-rays, problem areas may go undetected.

Dental x-rays may reveal:

Abscesses or cysts.
Bone loss.
Cancerous and non-cancerous tumors.
Decay between the teeth.
Developmental abnormalities.
Poor tooth and root positions.
Problems inside a tooth or below the gum line.


Detecting and treating dental problems at an early stage can save you time, money, unnecessary discomfort, and your teeth!

We do not recommend x-rays according to any calendar schedule. A recent full mouth series of x-rays is preferred for new patients. Check-up x-rays are recommended according to an individualís risk of dental disease.
