Garland Grove Dentistry

At what age should I start getting dental x-rays?

Periodic dental x-rays in Garland, TX, are essential for prevention. Your dentist will run x-rays for a few reasons, including:

  • You are a new patient with no x-ray films on file.
  • You have not had an x-ray in a long time.
  • You have a pain condition or oral health issue, and the cause is not apparent through an exam.
  • You’re having a procedure or treatment that requires image guidance and planning.

In other words, no specific age determines when or whether you should have dental x-rays. And if your dentist determines that you need films, we will always discuss the reasons why.

Our dental office relies on digital x-rays because they are safer for our patients and better for the environment. Digital x-rays emit less radiation than their last-generation counterparts. And there are no chemicals involved and nothing to dispose of. We also store your x-rays digitally for easy callup and comparison.
