Why do I need dental x-rays?

Digital x-ray taken at Mountainside NJ dental officeX-rays are a dentist's most important diagnostic tool. Often, problems start inside your teeth or beneath the gum line. By the time the problem is visible to the naked eye, it can be painful and more difficult to treat. Using digital dental x-rays taken regularly, we can catch problems early and treat them quickly and comfortably.

Digital X-Rays at Mountainside Family Dental

Our dentists in Mountainside, NJ utilize digital x-rays to detect any potential issues in your teeth and jaw. Pediatric dental patients generally need more frequent x-rays because their teeth are still developing. For adult patients who have restorative work like fillings or dental implants, it is important to make sure there is no tooth decay under the surface. 

If you are a new patient of Mountainside Family Dental, we will typically take x-rays during your first visit. Depending on your needs, we may recommend x-rays every six months or every few years if you keep up with your general dentistry appointments

Radiation emitted from digital dental x-rays is minimal, so there is no need to worry wether or not x-rays are safe at our dentist office.
