Dr. Stone's Office

How safe are dental x-rays?

The comfort and safety of our patients are our highest priorities. At Northern Hills Dental we use efficient, healthy digital x-rays. It is estimated that your exposure using digital x-rays is about 90% less than traditional film x-rays. 

Digital imaging gives us a highly detailed view of your mouth. Using this information, we can diagnose dental problems and develop an effective treatment plan. Digital images take very little time to develop, and we can get you in and out of our office faster with efficient diagnostics and treatment that is appropriate for your needs. Digital imaging also allows you to be part of the diagnostic and planning process because the images let you see exactly what we see. 

With the information we obtain from digital x-rays, Dr. Stone is able to make recommendations for treatments or therapies that are suited to your individual needs. With digital imaging, we can easily identify abnormalities within your jawbone. This makes planning complex treatments like root canals and extractions much more efficient. Details provided with digital imaging help us make appropriate decisions regarding your oral health.
