Why do I need these x-rays?
Many patients question the need for x-rays, and that’s understandable. However, your safety is our highest priority. We will never recommend an x-ray that you don’t need. If we think it’s necessary, we will explain why the x-ray is important and how it will benefit your oral health.
At Hillside Family Dental Care, we provide our patients with state-of-the-art digital x-rays that keep you safe by using a much lower level of radiation than film x-rays. The images created with digital x-ray images are very detailed, so we can see even the smallest problems and treat them before they become significant problems. We can share these images with you on a monitor next to your chair so you can see exactly what’s happening deep inside your tooth.
Finding and treating decay or disease in the early stages can save you money because we can take care of these problems when they’re small and easy to manage. Without early treatment, these conditions can develop to the point where complicated and costly dental care is necessary.
If you are concerned about the safety of digital x-rays, please call our Deerfield, NH dental office. We are always more than happy to answer your questions!
