Should You Worry About Dental X-rays?

Town and Country cosmetic dental and tooth implants

Providing first rate dental care is much easier for us at Chesterfield Smile Design when we have plenty of data about the dental health of our patients.

Pictures are more accurate than written notes. To go a step further: pictures that show what’s going on below the surface of your teeth are worth even more than a thousand words. So, along with a thorough visual examination, we like to have complete and up-to-date X-rays.

How often we update our X-rays is largely determined by your age and the state of your oral health. Because children are growing and they experience more changes to their teeth, they usually need X-rays more frequently.

X-rays use radiation, but are designed to minimize your exposure. Patients only get negligible amounts, making them safe. The latest generations of x-rays reduce radiation even more. But your safety is important to us, so we take the added precaution of covering you with a heavy leaded apron and collar.

At Chesterfield Smile Designs, we want the best possible dental health for all of our patients. We offer a full range of general dentistry procedurs, and treat issues like sleep apnea. Call us to schedule your next checkup today.
