Digital Dental X-Rays

What if I don’t want to x-rays taken at my visit?

Great question! We always try to meet our patients needs as best we can, whenever we can. We strive to follow the ALARA rule. ALARA stands for As Low As Reasonably Achievable. This is a radiation safety rule to minimize radiation doses as much as possible. Our patients safety is of the utmost importance to us and we will only recommend x-rays when we determine that they are needed for your optimal oral health. This is also the reason why we use digital dental x-rays. This enables us to take better quality x-rays at a fraction of the radiation of the traditional film x-rays.

If you have any questions about our digital dental x-rays, or just x-rays in general, please do not hesitate to call us today at 410-692-6132.
