Digital X-Rays in
Greenbelt

Even if you don’t have any symptoms, there may be more going on with your oral health below the surface. X-rays can be used to generate radiographic images of areas the dentist is interested in viewing more in-depth.

Digital X-Rays

Our specially trained team at Greenbelt Dental Associates takes every precaution when using our state of the art digital X-ray imaging technology. For 20 years we have been safely taking images for patients from Greenbelt, Beltsville, Lanham, Riverdale, Hyattsville, Glenn Dale, and the surrounding areas to get a better understanding of each person’s oral health and discuss potential treatment options.

What is digital X-ray imaging?

X-ray beams are used to create a black and white image of your bones and teeth. Digital X-ray images are captured immediately, allowing the dentist to analyze them instantly and review the findings with you.

Our advanced technology at Greenbelt Dental Associates allows us to generate digital X-ray images quickly right in the office. We securely store the images electronically so we can more efficiently treat you.

Why should I have digital X-ray images taken?

  • Establish Medical History

    When you are a new patient, the dentist may want to have digital X-ray images taken of your mouth to get a better idea of your present oral health status. This sets up a base level the dentist can reference later to better identify changes.

  • Uncover Issues

    Though you might not notice anything unusual, digital X-ray images may catch an issue that is going on in your teeth or jaw. Early detection is helpful in treating problems and may result in your health being improved sooner and potentially more cost-effective.

  • Diagnose

    Images generated from digital X-rays can be great tools for the dentist to better diagnose problems you may be experiencing or catch an issue before it becomes a larger problem. X-ray imaging can find problems early on, which can help you avoid more drastic and expensive procedures later.

    These images can uncover:

    • Tooth decay hidden by fillings
    • Bone infections
    • Cavities between teeth
    • Periodontal disease
    • Tumors
    • Cysts or abscesses

How do I know if I should have a digital X-ray taken?

The dentist will look at your medical history, disease risk, age and symptoms to determine how often you should have digital X-rays.

Friendly and professional staff. I went for wisdom teeth extraction following an exam and x-rays and all in all I had a great efficient and pain-free experience. Couldn't have asked for better!

Great first impression, I am so scared of dentists but they made me feel welcome during the assessment and x-rays. Can't wait to go back and get my teeth fixed up!
