Part of your cleaning and prevention plan at our dental practice involves taking dental X-rays of your teeth. At our office, we use the latest dental X-ray technology known as digital radiography. This technology uses an electronic sensor to capture and store digital images of your teeth. Our office is equipped with SCANX digital radiography, which takes a scan of your teeth and digitizes it so that we can view any potential problems.
Dr. Chetan Parikh was trained as an oral and maxillofacial radiologist in India, which means that he has the experience necessary to make sure that you are taken care of. Our dentist is dedicated to providing you with safe treatment, which includes providing you with comfortable, efficient, and low-radiation digital X-rays in Rockville, Maryland.
It is important to have digital X-rays taken of your teeth on a regular basis in order to prevent discomfort, pain, and permanent damage to your mouth. We will take all necessary precautions to prevent any unnecessary exposure to radiation. Your health and safety are always of the utmost importance to our office. We take digital X-rays using the principle of ALARA (As Low As Reasonably Achievable).
How do I know I need an X-ray?
The frequency and need for digital X-rays are based on medical and dental history, a dental exam, signs and symptoms, your age, and risk of disease. Although a full X-ray of both your top and bottom teeth should be taken once or twice a year, new digital X-rays may be needed if any potential oral problems arise. If you are experiencing any difficulties or pain, we highly recommend that you arrange an appointment with our dentist promptly. We invite you to contact Chetan Parikh, DMD, MDS, DABCDSM today for more information and to schedule a visit.
