About Digital X-rays
We perform digital x-rays, also known as digital radiographs, with your annual dental exam to give us a better view of your teeth and gums. CareStream 8100 x-rays make it easier for our team to diagnose issues that aren't visible and to assess the health of your teeth, jaw, and gums. With x-rays, we can easily see dental concerns, such as decay, cavities, cysts, abscesses, bone atrophy, and impactions. If found early enough, patients can undergo less invasive treatment options. As part of your dental exam at Complete Family Dentistry in Wellsboro, PA, x-rays will help us diagnose and treat oral health conditions.

How Do Digital X-rays Help You?
Typically, patients receive x-rays during their dental examinations. We can perform them as a preventive measure or if you feel concerned about a specific problem. Even though digital x-rays emit significantly less radiation than traditional x-rays, Complete Family Dentistry prefers to limit patient exposure. Although digital x-rays are typically safe for all patients, women who are breastfeeding or pregnant should talk to us at the beginning of their appointment so we can take extra cautionary steps.
What to Expect
Generally performed at the beginning of your appointment, digital imaging takes around 5 – 10 minutes to complete. Most patients will have a series of x-rays, which help us see detailed images of the entire mouth. After taking the x-rays, we will upload and review them with you throughout your appointment. We will show you any areas of concern and discuss treatment options. If you need additional dental treatment, your x-rays will help us create a detailed care plan that addresses your needs.
Monitoring Your Oral Health
At your annual dental examination with Complete Family Dentistry, we will take a series of digital images.
