We use digital x-rays, which reduce overall radiation by 75% over film. We generally require a full mouth x-ray series at your initial examination and yearly bitewing x-rays (2-4 exposures) to detect decay between teeth. If you have a full series from a previous dentist that was taken within the last three years, we will be able to use that in lieu of a new full series. We will be glad to contact your prior dentist on your behalf.
