      What are Dental X-rays?

      Dental X-rays, or radiographs, provide you and your dentist a more in-depth view of your teeth’s health, structure, and position. They can also help identify any potential issues for treatment and prevention. With dental X-rays, your dentist can find details that are not visible during routine dental exams.

        Frequently Asked Questions

        Will a dental X-ray hurt?

        While the X-ray itself will not cause any pain, you will need to bite on a piece of film, which some people find uncomfortable.

        What are the risks of dental X-rays?

        Dental X-rays expose you to low levels of radiation that are generally safe for both children and adults. In modern times, the radiation dose is so low, you'll get more radiation from a flight to Sydney then our x-rays.

        How often should I get X-rays?

        It is recommended to get the smaller, bitewing x-rays every 2 years, and the larger OPG x-ray every 3-5 years. However, if in pain, or experiencing a dental problem, an x-ray is normally essential in the correct diagnoses and treatment of the problem. 

        Do I need to prepare before getting a dental X-ray?

        There’s no need for any preparation before getting a dental X-ray, except maybe for brushing your teeth so you have a clean mouth from which to get X-ray data from.

        What if I’m pregnant?

        This is generally not an issue. The radiation dose is so low these days, you will get more from a flight to Sydney. However, if a mum is uncomfortable with the idea of an x-ray being taken, we will always respect your decision without any judgement.
