Digital X-Rays Overview
Digital x-rays or radiographs are performed as part of a dental examination to provide a more thorough picture of your mouth. Digital x-rays make it easier for our practitioners to diagnose issues that aren't easily visible, and to understand more about your oral health by showing the interior of your teeth, jaw, and gums. There are many dental concerns that may be diagnosed with x-rays including cavities, decay, abscesses, cysts, impactions, and bone loss. If these issues are identified in the early stages, you may have more treatment options that are less invasive. As part of your annual dental examination at Buford Family Dentistry in Buford, GA, digital imaging will help our team diagnose and correct dental problems.

"Went in for my molar root canal treatment with Dr Cohen. Didn't have to wait more than 5mns before being called in. And within an hour ,it was done . I was surprised and happy. Dr Cohen was very professional, very focused and didn't waste any time attending other patients. I had his undivided attention. Also made sure I was comfortable and not in any pain. My previous experiences at a different clinic and different doctor almost took 2plus hours. And not to mention had to wait almost 30mns before being called in.Dr Sunil Mittal and the staff are equally wonderful and professional and caring. Wouldh highly recommend Buford family dentistry."- V.S. / Google / Jan 31, 2020
Best Candidates for Digital X-Rays
For most patients, digital imaging is included in an annual dental examination. Digital x-rays may be performed for prevention or if you are concerned about a specific problem. Even though digital x-rays emit significantly less radiation compared to traditional film x-rays, Buford Family Dentistry tries to limit each patient's exposure. Although digital x-rays are generally safe for all patients, female patients who are breastfeeding or pregnant should inform our general dentists at the start of their exam so special cautionary steps may be taken.
What to Expect with Digital X-Rays
Generally performed at the start of your appointment, digital imaging takes around 5 – 10 minutes to do. Many patients will get a set of x-rays for specific sections of their mouth or jaw. Once they are done, they will be uploaded and viewed during your exam. We can show you any issues and talk about possible treatments.
Digital X-Rays Follow-Up
X-rays are usually done at your annual dental examination. At certain exams, a full mouth set may be needed for a complete view of your teeth, gums, and bones of the jaw. Your x-rays will be saved at Buford Family Dentistry so our expert staff can identify trends and address any growing concerns.
Digital X-Rays Insurance Coverage
Generally, dental insurance plans will pay for digital x-rays as part of an annual dental examination. Our office can talk to your insurance to calculate potential payments. If you have any remaining costs or if you are not using insurance, Buford Family Dentistry takes several methods of payment and we can assist you with finding financing.
Digital imaging is a useful tool that can help to diagnose health conditions. As a part of an annual dental examination, digital x-rays can give us an in-depth understanding that allows us to catch hidden problems to be treated before you feel pain.
