Why are dental x-rays necessary?

Dr. Goel is completely committed to helping you attain excellent oral health. Solid preventive treatments and diagnostic evaluation are the foundation of any treatment plan. At our Queen Anne Dental office, we utilize the latest technology to assist in patient treatment.

We usually take x-rays once a year, but if we encounter a problem, we may need to take additional images to provide a proper diagnose and plan for treatment. Dental x-rays are a mainstay of dental medicine, and one of our most valued diagnostic tools.

They allow us to get a view of the interior portion of your teeth, beneath your gums, and between your teeth. Using digital x-rays, we can find problems at their earliest stages, treat them as necessary, and monitor your progress after treatment.

Digital x-rays are also essential for helping us develop and place dental appliances like implants. Proper implant placement is crucial to the proper function and long-term success of these dental appliances and restorations.

Your safety and health are both important to us, and at our Queen Anne Dental office, we rely on digital x-rays, which reduce exposure to stray radiation by as much as 90% when compared to traditional x-rays. Digital x-rays are safer, and more efficient because we can see the detailed image of your teeth immediately.

We understand your concerns and want you to be completely comfortable with the care we provide. Please don’t hesitate to contact our office if you have other questions about x-rays or would like to schedule an appointment.
