Are dental x-rays safe?

At Bagley Family Dental, we take all of our x-rays digitally, which benefits our dentist and our patients.

Patients appreciate the fact that their x-rays are readily available for Dr. Bagley to see, and we can easily send them to other pertinent providers for review. Digital x-rays also emit much less radiation (about 90 percent) than standard film x-rays we used in the past, so they're very safe for adults and children.

For our Greeley dentist, digital x-rays provide a clearer image for a more straightforward diagnosis. He can show you your x-ray on the television monitor in our treatment room, making treatment recommendations simple.

Digital x-rays also leave less footprint on our environment since they require no harsh chemicals for development.

We typically recommend one set of bitewing x-rays each year to provide a baseline and help Dr. Bagley see things that may not be visible with the naked eye during your examination. Most insurance companies cover yearly x-rays as a preventive measure.

If it's time for your next preventive teeth cleaning and checkup in Greeley, CO, don't wait to call us at (970) 353-5664. Scheduling these appointments will help protect your smile and could save you from needing more extensive treatment in the future.
