What are dental X-Rays?

Digital dental x-rays or dental radiographs are performed during an annual dental exam to allow a better picture of your oral health. Digital dental x-rays allow cosmetic dentist Dr. Bhavik Bhakta to diagnose concerns that are not visible by the naked eye and to learn about your oral health by showing the inside of your teeth, gums, and jaw. There are numerous dental concerns that may be diagnosed with digital dental x-rays, such as cavities, decay, cysts, abscesses, bone loss, and impactions. If these problems are discovered early, they may have more effective and less invasive treatment options. As part of your annual exam at Sunshine Dental in Corona, CA, digital dental imaging will help Dr. Bhakta accurately diagnose and treat dental problems.

Am I a good candidate?

For most patients, dental x-rays are included in an annual dental examination. They may be performed as part of a preventive dental treatment plan or if you are concerned about a specific problem. Even though digital dental x-rays emit less radiation compared to film dental x-rays, Sunshine Dental tries to minimize each patient's exposure. Although digital dental x-rays are generally safe for all patients, women who are breastfeeding or pregnant should tell Dr. Bhakta at the start of their exam so that extra precautions can be taken.

What should you expect from a dental X-ray?

Generally done at the beginning of your dental exam, digital dental x-rays take about 5 – 10 minutes to complete. This x-ray will show a panoramic scan of your upper and lower jaw, providing our dentists at Sunshine Dental a closer look at your teeth. Most patients will get a series of dental x-rays taken to show all areas. After they are done, they will be uploaded and can be viewed by you throughout your appointment. The dental imagining will uncover any issues so that you can go over any possible treatments needed.

Digital X-Rays FAQs

Are there any risks associated with digital x-rays?

Digital x-rays are considered very safe because they produce less radiation compared to traditional dental x-rays. However, exposure to any form of radiation can increase your risk of cancer, which is why we take special precautions and minimize your exposure. Rest assured, your safety is always our top priority at Sunshine Dental.

How often should I get dental x-rays?

The frequency of digital dental x-rays depends on your individual needs and current oral health issues. Generally, we recommend dental x-rays once a year or as needed if you have any concerns about your teeth. Your dentist can provide more specific advice and information based on your unique situation.

Do I need to do anything special before getting dental x-rays?

No special preparation is required for digital dental x-rays. However, if you have a history of allergies or sensitivities, please let us know when scheduling your appointment. This will help ensure a safe and comfortable experience no matter what type of dental treatment you’re receiving.
