We Need to Take Regular X-rays to Update Your File
Our office always provides oral X-rays to our patients after a certain amount of time has passed or if you are new patients in our office. We want to make sure that we can see every single area on the X-ray and that we are able to fix any issues that we see along the way. This can be done with the use of these X-rays.
X-rays are easy to take, they do not hurt, and they can show much more than the naked eye is able to see. That means that our dental hygienists and our dentists can easily see what is happening inside the mouth and fix the issues you're experiencing.
X-rays are often covered by insurance companies, as well. If you are worried about the cost of the procedure, speak with us and we can give you some information on what is and is not covered by your dental insurance and how much the X-rays might be out of pocket or with a co-pay. This way, you're more informed.
They Really Help They are important to have and they can aid in the health of your oral wellness, so make sure to have them done regularly for a healthier, more beautiful smile!
If you need a check-up and want to have us take a look to see what is happening in your mouth, speak with us today. We are more than happy to provide the dental care that is needed so you can rest assured knowing you can smile with ease once again.
