X-rays, also known as radiographs—is a procedure that uses invisible electromagnetic energy beams to get a picture of the inside of a tooth or bone..

The idea is that different tissues absorb X-rays at different levels. Because of this, a radiograph can make a visible picture of the inside of a patient's mouth, teeth and jaw.

Each computer-generated image produced during an X-ray is called a radiograph or exposure.

What to Expect

An X-ray is safe, even though Hollywood horror stories make it seem like radiation can cause horrific mutations. But the amount of radiation emitted by dental X-rays is less than that of natural sources like radon or cosmic rays, which humans are exposed to every day.

We only use digital x-rays. Our technology will instantly generate your dental X-rays so they can be viewed in real time. You won't have to worry about receiving an old, blurry X-ray when they cannot be read by the dentist.

We all want to keep cavities away. But how? Since dental X-rays are the most effective way to discover if you have oral cancer or other serious diseases, they're really worth thinking about—not to mention all the good reasons for getting regular ones.
