Are Dental X-Rays Safe?

At Today’s Dental Comfort, we believe that regular dental visits are essential to the longevity of your oral health. Your oral health is our main concern and we want to ensure that your teeth stay healthy and function properly. When you visit our office for your hygiene examination and cleaning one component of the exam is dental X-rays. Dental X-rays are images of your teeth used to determine the levels of decay in the teeth, if decay is present between the teeth, and to assist during the process of placing dental implants and other needed procedures. Children also receive dental X-rays that are useful in identifying not only tooth decay, but to determine if there is enough room for the adult teeth to emerge. X-rays also help identify if wisdom teeth are present and if they are impacted.

Expecting a Bundle of Joy? Don’t Let it Lead to a Bundle of Dental Problems!

Are you or a loved one expecting a new bundle of joy within the next few months? There are not many life events more exciting than adding a baby to the family. Pregnancy and preparing for a baby mean plenty of activity, such as multiple doctor visits, ultrasound appointments, completing a baby registry, and designing a nursery. All of this preparation for a baby can sometimes cause expectant mothers to put their own needs aside. Unfortunately, this can include dental care. Expectant mothers are safe to visit the dentist for their hygiene examinations. In fact, we recommend pregnant women be extra diligent with their oral care, as pregnancy can lead to gum disease and an increase in tooth decay.
