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.

"If you’re looking for an honest family dentist in Hamburg, look no further! My family and I have been going to Dr Dando for a few years and we love it there! He never suggests unnecessary treatments which is something I’ve experienced with other dentists. Dr Dando, the hygienists, and the office staff are very friendly, efficient, and knowledgeable. Marika is usually our hygienist and she is awesome…sociable and gentle with both adults and children. I have had two other hygienists clean my mouth and they’re just as wonderful! They have newer tools that make cleanings painless, even with sensitive teeth. You won’t be disappointed!"- M.K. / Google / Feb 26, 2022
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?
