Dental x-rays are an important diagnostic tool that you most likely will need or have needed in the past. They are used to detect dental health problems that cannot be detected during a physical examination. Group Health Dental utilizes the most advanced dental x-ray technology available in Manhattan to produce x-rays that can be used in treatment planning and in routine preventive dental care. If one of our dental professionals at Group Health Dental determines that it’s time for you to have a dental x-ray there are several things you need to know to set your mind at ease.
- Your x-ray may be a part of your regular dental checkup or to help diagnose a particular issue that we have detected.
- Your dental x-ray will most likely be covered by your dental insurance. There are limitations and exclusions at times, but our professional staff at Group Health Dental will help you determine what, if anything you will owe. However, dental insurance covers x-rays at 100% most of the time.
- Digital x-rays emit an extremely low amount of radiation. You most likely are exposed to less radiation during your x-rays than you are exposed to in one day naturally from the sun, earth and various technologies that you use during the day.
Our dental professionals at Group Health Dental are here to answer any additional questions you have about the x-rays you need. Our goal is to make you feel comfortable and knowledgeable during your entire visit with us. Call us and book your dental appointment today. We look forward to seeing you!
