Dental X-Rays

What’s a Dental X-ray?

A dental x-ray is an important tool that we use in the office to help detect a number of different oral health problems. X-rays allow us to see things that would otherwise go missed with a dental exam. These include infections, bone loss, cavities and impacted teeth. At Omni Dental Care, we always use the best technology available to take patients’ x-rays.

Why would you need a Dental X-ray?

There are many different things that we can see on an x-ray that would go unnoticed with a normal exam. If you do not have regular x-rays taken, these problems can and will get worse over time. This is why we recommend having these x-rays taken often. They are safe and can be beneficial for patients of all ages in need of this quality care.

We LOVE Omni Dental. We live in NJ and will travel close to 2 hours every six months with my husband and 3 boys. service and professionalism is unmatched. Very informative and attentive to all patients. The best by far!

Who is a candidate for a Dental X-ray?

The reason you might benefit from an x-ray is because you need to come in for a regular appointment or you have an emergency. Most patients are good candidates to have x-rays taken. The technology that we use in the office is state-of-the-art and uses a minimal amount of radiation. This ensures a clear image without the need for a massive amount of radiation to be used to achieve it.

What happens during the Dental X-ray process?

One of our dental experts will start by placing a lead apron over the body. A small dental film is placed in the mouth behind several teeth. The machine is aimed at this area and the x-ray is taken. The film is then changed and moved to a different area of the mouth. The process is very quick and we do our best to make it as comfortable as possible for you. You should consider having dental x-rays taken at the majority of your appointments when coming into the office with us for treatment.

If you think you need to have new x-rays taken, call the office today so that we can get you in for a convenient appointment.
