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