Dental x-rays in High Point, NC

Dental x-rays work by creating an image of the denser parts of your body, such as teeth and bone, revealing dental problems that may not be apparent to the naked eye. At Dr. David Novak DDS, we use this technology to detect and treat various disorders, such as cavities, infections, misalignment and decay, in their early stages. Relatively easy and pain free, dental X-rays are the fastest way to locate and identify a problem before it has a chance to cause extensive damage to your smile.

Dental X-rays have come a long way over the years, improving in accuracy, speed, comfort, and clarity. We use state-of-the-art equipment to ensure your dental exam is thorough and pain free!

  • Bitewing X-Rays: check for decay between teeth and jaw misalignment
  • Periapical X-Rays: Used to find problems in the jaw
  • Occlusal X-Rays: Used to examine the roof or floor of the mouth
  • Panoramic X-Rays: Give a broad view of the mouth and dental structures

Depending on your age and level of dental health, the FDA recommends getting a dental x-ray between every 6 months and 3 years.

Risks

Taking a dental X-ray takes just a few minutes and doesn't hurt. Minimal amounts of radiation are emitted in the process, as x-ray machines are strictly regulated by the FDA. If you need a dental x-ray and are pregnant, let your dentist know and he or she will cover you with a lead apron to shield radiation.
