RADIOGRAPHS (DENTAL X-RAYS)

Dental radiographs are important in a comprehensive and thorough assessment of your oral health. We use them to assess hidden structures such as malignant or benign masses, bone loss, cavities, impacted wisdom teeth, the health of maxillary sinuses, the TMJ structures, and other tissues and conditions.

The dosage of Xray radiation received by a dental patient is very small and is further reduced by the use of a lead shield, apron, and thyroid collar.

These are processed much quicker than conventional radiographic films, emit a reduced amount of radiation, and are instantly viewable on a computer.

An initial set of radiographs, known as a full mouth series, is recommended as an important part of the initial oral comprehensive examination. This set is typically not repeated before three to five years from the time it is first taken. For purposes of regular assessments and checkups, a set of four X-rays are taken once or twice a year. This is known as a set of Bitewings. And as required, individual, or single tooth, Xrays are taken in times of an emergency or to evaluate the progress and health of a specific tooth that is under regular monitoring.

Please contact Dr. Dargham and her team to schedule your initial consultation. For your convenience, Dr. Dargham welcomes patients in one of two locations (Coconut Grove Dental Clinic and Biscayne Blvd. Dental Clinic), both located in the heart of Miami Dade County.
