The Importance of X-Rays Alpha Dental Care

Why Are Dental X-Rays So Important?

During your visit to the dentist it is common for us to ask you if you would like to have X-Rays done as it is a general offer for all of our clients. We recommend that you always accept this offer and have X-Rays done but we would also like to remind you that X-Rays are not a REQUIRED service, they are simply a RECOMMENDED service. As a client you have the right to decline any service we provide if you do not feel comfortable doing that procedure. Customer satisfaction is our top priority and we want to make sure the needs of all our customers are being met. If you are concerned that X-Rays can cause harm to your body, we have created a page addressing all safety concerns regarding X-Ray procedures.

Why Have Them Done?

Although you are not required to have X-Rays done every visit, having an X-Ray done frequently can help us detect any issues with you teeth early and that will allow us to provide you with the best care plan we can offer. The sooner we are able to detect problems with your teeth, the better chance we have of addressing the issue. Next time you are offered to have an X-Ray done, make sure you think of the pros and cons and ask yourself some key questions.

  • Are the X-Rays covered through insurance or am I paying out of pocket?
  • Have I had any discomfort or pain with my teeth since my last visit?
  • Is my dentist recommending I have the X-Rays done?

We look forward to seeing you at Alpha Dental Care!
