X-rays:

X-rays are one of the best ways to discover problem areas of the teeth. The American Dental Association recommends a full set be taken every five years and a set of side pictures called "bitewings" every two years. Some patients may need to have x-rays more often or less often than these "guidelines". We determine each patient's treatment based on their particular needs. The amount of radiation a patient receives during dental x-rays is less than he or she would receive from watching one hour of color T.V. You can be sure that when the doctor requests that you have x-rays in the office, they are necessary and safe.

Cleanings:

Stains and calculus form on people's teeth at different rates and some people have habits such as smoking that help contribute to the problem. As always, treatment for a person's periodontal health will be determined by the individual patient's needs.
