X-rays are an essential part of any preventative or diagnostic oral exam. This painless procedure is usually done at the same time as teeth cleaning, and it allows the Dr. Siachos to view any small cavities, bone loss, or other problem areas in the mouth. Our office uses digital x-rays.
There are many benefits to digital x-rays. In addition to providing the ability to easily store and reference past images, digital x-rays result in decreased radiation levels up to 80-90% vs. traditional x-rays.
For patients suffering from sensitive gag reflex, we are happy to offer the Planmeca ProMax. This state of the art machine has the ability to take dental bite-wing x-rays while the patient’s mouth is closed.
