Radiographs are routinely taken with the highest quality and lowest radiation digital system. The radiation in dental radiographs is less than one day of natural background radiation.
Radiographs are digital images on a computer to facilitate education for the patient and understanding of the diagnosis. Radiographs are taken to diagnose dental decay, gum diseases, infections, or any pain/sensitivity
Typically, every 3-5 years a panoramic radiograph will be taken and every year four bitewing radiographs. More radiographs may be necessary when needed as determined by the doctor. Types include bitewings, periapicals, full-mouth series, Cone-beam computerized technology (CBCT), and panoramic.

Radiographs are important for many reasons. It can help diagnose gum ceases, dental decay, and infections, and can even help us understand why your teeth hurt or are oversensitive.
We use the lowest radiation digital system, and you are more likely to get more radiation from one day of natural background radiation than from a radiograph.
Typically, we like to do a full panoramic radiograph every 3-5 years, and a bitewing radiograph every year. Depending on your case, you may have to have them done more frequently.
