Digital x-rays are an essential tool that Dr. Chen uses to diagnose many oral health conditions like tooth decay and infections. They also offer a reliable baseline for monitoring your dental health, as we take a set of bitewing x-rays every year.
Our patients often ask us if dental x-rays are safe, and the answer is yes! Digital x-rays not only emit much less radiation (90 percent less) than standard films taken in the past, but they are also readily available for immediate viewing. This allows you to stay on top of any treatment concerns as soon as possible.
