The answer is yes! X-rays are an integral tool that Dr. Bagley uses to diagnose problems like tooth decay, cavities, gum disease, and other dental concerns.
At Bagley Family Dental, we use digital x-rays, which emit 90 percent less radiation than traditional film x-rays. Digital x-rays are also readily available for you and your Greeley dentist to look at and discuss, which is extremely helpful in dental emergencies.
For most patients, we recommend one set of bitewing x-rays per year. These x-rays give Dr. Bagley a baseline for monitoring your dental health each year and make him aware of any concerns early on.
If you have dental insurance, your yearly x-rays will typically be covered as they are considered a preventive service. Being consistent with your preventive teeth cleanings, checkups, and yearly x-rays can help you avoid painful and costly problems.
If you have pain or discomfort, Dr. Bagley may recommend an x-ray of a specific tooth to determine the best treatment course.
