Digital Radiographs

We recommend taking dental radiographs once per year in order to diagnose any potential cavities, infection or bone abnormalities. We only use digital radiography, which is the lowest radiation dose of all medical x-rays.  A yearly x-ray exam, which uses 4 bitewing films and 2 periapical films is only 0.012 mSv, which is less radiation than what a person gets in one day from natural background radiation or equivalent to a 1-2 hour flight on an airplane.
