Our office only offers digital x-rays. Compared to traditional x-rays, digital x-rays only emit 1/8 of the radiation (that's less than a home microwave!). We recommend a full set of x-rays (FMX - 18 pictures):
and a Panoramic x-ray, which is a 360 view of your jaw:
at your first visit or Comprehensive exam visits. As our standard of care, we only take a full series every 3-5 years. And, check-up x-rays (4 pictures) when you come in for your routine cleaning every 6 months. However, you always have the choice to forgo x-rays, just let our team members know!
