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 Imagix Dental of Buford, digital imaging will help our team diagnose and correct dental problems.

"Great family dentistry. Caring caregivers with a professional manner that is impeccable. My prior dentistry the difference is just night and day, they are so efficient, kind and clean. As a heart patient and one with anxiety they do their all to make you at ease. I recently had a terribly bad and recovering from a bad abscess from an extracted tooth which the dentist here removed very well. And had compassion for me and true concern and took care of the pain and gave me the best antibiotic I feel as though I can really beat this possibly life threatening abscess that prior care from a competitor didn't fully situate. They called several days to check on me and gave me solid advice and aftercare info each day that helped me improve and I felt cared for like I really mattered this is truly professional caregiving and kind. The staff is leading going but very prompt and courteous always. I get nervous easily and they never made me feel bad about it. My husband goes here as does my mother in law it's just a wonderful family dentistry. I feel now where I felt hopeless about my future teeth/gum options and was told many things that made me feel incapable prior I feel like I have options And having that hope after so long is absolutely tear inducing joy I have not had and I thank the doctor and team deeply."- S.P. / Google / Aug 23, 2021

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, Imagix Dental of Buford 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
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.
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 Imagix Dental of Buford so our expert staff can identify trends and address any growing concerns.
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, Imagix Dental of Buford 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.
