About Our X-Ray Services

Forward Thinking

At Chelsea Dental Group, we have X-ray equipment in our office that allows us to view detailed pictures of your teeth, bones and the surrounding soft tissues. When our dentists look beneath the surface, we can catch problems that cannot be seen with the naked eye. X-rays allow us to find cavities, impacted wisdom teeth, bone loss and more that would not otherwise have been found.

When to Receive Diagnostic Imaging

The regularity of your X-rays depends heavily on your overall health, age, risk for disease and signs or symptoms of existing conditions. Children might require more frequent imaging than adults since their bones are still changing and developing. Our dentists will review your history with you, assess your oral health and determine how often you need X-rays. 

Advice from Our Dental Team

It is in your best interests to brush and floss your teeth every day. If nothing else, you should be brushing at least twice a day and flossing at least once a day. Make sure to use a gentle, soft-bristled toothbrush and toothpaste with fluoride as this will promote stronger enamel. 

There’s more than flossing and brushing involved when it comes to the health of your teeth. Maintaining a healthy, balanced diet and limiting your intake of acidic and sugary foods will help your teeth remain strong and resilient. You should also visit our office for your semi annual exam and ask our dental staff about the sealants and fluoride treatments we offer to enhance your smile.

Are X-Rays Safe?

Many dental patients today are concerned about the safety of X-ray imaging. Although the process involves very small amounts of radiation exposure, the risk of harm is extremely low. Our X-ray tools and methods are specifically designed to ensure your safety and limit your radiation exposure. We take all the necessary precautions to protect your health.

Let’s get you smiling again.
