  • Oral Cancer Screenings: We'll check your face, neck, lips, tongue, throat, and gum tissue for signs of oral cancer.
  • Gum Disease Evaluation: Our Brooklyn dentists will check your gums and bones surrounding the teeth for signs of periodontal disease.
  • Examination of Tooth Decay: We will check all tooth surfaces for signs of decay. Our Brooklyn, NY dentist office uses special dental instruments to ensure the most thorough exam.
  • Examination of Existing Restoration: We'll check to ensure that any fillings, crowns, bridgework and other restorations are in good shape.

Professional X-Ray Exams From our Brooklyn Dentists

Dental X-rays are essential, preventative, and diagnostic tools that help our Brooklyn dentists provide you with valuable information not visible during a regular dental exam. Our Brooklyn dentists and dental hygienists use this information to safely and accurately detect hidden abnormalities. Without X-rays, problem areas may go undetected, such as:

  • Abscesses or cysts
  • Bone loss
  • Cancerous and non-cancerous tumors
  • Decay between the teeth
  • Developmental abnormalities
  • Poor tooth and root positions
  • Problems inside a tooth or below the gum line

Are Dental X-Rays Safe?

Our X-rays are completely safe and we take necessary precautions to limit your exposure to radiation. We are all exposed to natural radiation in our environment. The amount of radiation exposure from a full mouth series of x-rays is equal to the amount a person receives in a single day from natural sources.

Dental x-rays produce a low level of radiation and are very considered safe. Dentists take necessary precautions to limit the patient's exposure to radiation during dental x-rays. These precautions include using lead apron shields to protect the body, and using modern fast film that cuts down the exposure time of each x-ray.

Our Brooklyn dental professionals can provide regular X-rays paired with our expert cleaning service to help you save time, money, unnecessary pain, and most of all your teeth!
