What is a digital x-ray?
Dental x-rays, also known as digital dental radiographs, are done in conjunction with annual exams to provide a more accurate overall view of your mouth. X-rays can make it easier for our team at Theodore E Dando DMD Family & Cosmetic Dentistry to diagnose concerns that aren't visible and to understand more about your oral health by showing the interior of your teeth, gums, and jawbone. There are numerous dental conditions that may be diagnosed with dental x-rays, including decay, cavities, abscesses, cysts, bone loss, and impactions. If these conditions are identified in the early stages, there may be more effective and less invasive treatment options. During your dental examination in our Hamburg, PA office, digital dental imaging will help us accurately diagnose and correct oral health problems.

"I have to say anyone who has anxiety with going to the dentist, this is the place to go. My cleaning was absolutely amazing and I was told step by step what was going on. Liz totally rocked!! Today I had to get a cavity filled and getting a needle in my mouth didn’t sit easy with me. Dr. Dando was amazing and I didn’t even feel the needle!! Definitely coming back for more cleanings and hopefully no more fillings but I know they will take care of me if I do."- F.N. / Google / Mar 02, 2023

what are the benefits of getting an x-ray?
Dental technology is a part of routine dental exams and can be given for prevention if you are dealing with a specific dental issue. Here at Theodore E Dando DMD Family & Cosmetic Dentistry, we strive to use digital teeth x-rays, the x-rays that use less radiation when compared to traditional dental x-rays, to minimize your exposure. Although they are usually safe for any patient, female patients who are breastfeeding or pregnant should tell our dental team at the start of their exam so that extra cautionary steps may be taken for these Hamburg, PA patients.
what is a dental x-ray screening like?
Most digital x-rays will take around 5 – 10 minutes to complete. They are taken in the areas where each Hamburg, PA patient needs them, whether it is for a routine annual exam or a specialty procedure. Once they are taken, they are uploaded to be viewed by you and our team during your exam. We will be able to show you if there are any areas of concern and discuss possible treatments. Contact Theodore E Dando DMD Family & Cosmetic Dentistry to learn more.
what should I expect after dental imaging?
Digital dental images are generally taken annually here at Theodore E Dando DMD Family & Cosmetic Dentistry. For a comprehensive view of the teeth, a whole mouth series of x-rays can be taken for a better understanding of what is happening with your teeth, gums, and oral bones. Your digital dental images will be stored with your oral health file at our Hamburg, PA location so we can identify changes over time and address any areas of concern.
will insurance cover dental x-rays?
In most cases, it is common to see dental insurance cover the cost of your dental x-rays. Our dental professionals in our Hamburg, PA office are happy to talk to your provider to estimate and figure out any out-of-pocket costs. If you are not using dental insurance, Theodore E Dando DMD Family & Cosmetic Dentistry takes many payment methods, and we can give you information on financing options, including our acceptance of CareCredit®.
