King House Dental may be located in a historic landmark, but it has been transformed to include all of the latest and greatest dental technologies of today. Dr. Steve Tatevossian has spared no expense to ensure that our examinations include the most advanced digital imaging available so that we can offer the best outlook for our patients. By using digital X-rays during dental exams, our team of dental experts are able to catch and treat dental problems early. Also known as digital radiographs, digital X-rays allow Dr. Tatevossian to see various layers within the mouth, well beyond the surface of the teeth and gums to diagnose gum disease, decay, soft tissue defects, bone loss, cysts, and much more. Once a dental problem is caught early, treatment can begin to repair and restore the mouth back to optimal health.
"I Really Enjoy going to King House Dental... The staff are really friendly and honest on every visit."- P.B. / Yelp / Jan 17, 2017
"The best dentist and dental practice Ive ever been to! Had an extraction and after numbing wore off I was very surprised to have very minimal discomfort and pain at all. I will never leave! My husband is going to be switching dentists after all the raving I've done about Dr. T and his staff."- Y.N. / Yelp / Mar 05, 2019
"I put off going to the dentist for over a year because I did not think I could be nice whilst being drilled, etc. I finally called King House Dental and the experience was awesome. All my work done at one time and I slept through the experience! Why wouldn't you sleep through dental work? If your done with drilling, go see this guy."- C.S. / Yelp / Feb 14, 2019
"Had my first visit with Dr T yesterday. I'm a very nervous patient, which is why it took me 3 years to make the appointment! Dr T and his staff went above and beyond to make sure that I was comfortable. I need to have some work done but he made it seem like no big deal. Dr T is very personable and knowledgeable. He does a very thorough exam. I'll post again after the work is done. I definitely recommend this dental office!"- S.V. / Facebook / Jan 12, 2019
"Love this dentist and staff everyone is friendly, i feel they are honest. My husband and i have been coming for a few years now. My kids pediatric dentist got bought out by western dental and They said my kids had all kinds of cavities and needed major work which was a ridiculous amount. So i switched my kids here, and My son had NO cativites, my daughter did have 2 but thats it she needed NO major work. My kids are much happier here."- E.N. / Yelp / Jan 10, 2019
Digital X-rays usually take about 5 – 10 minutes to complete with very little discomfort to the patient. Once the teeth are cleaned and polished, the dental hygienist or assistant will take the needed X-rays with the digital equipment and upload it to the computer where the dentist and patient can discuss any areas of concerns during the dental examination.
As a preventative procedure, digital X-rays and dental exams are usually covered by dental insurance, so our front office will contact the patient’s insurance to determine any out-of-pockets costs.
Digital X-rays are almost instantly viewable on the computer by the dentist and patient. The dentist can assess the current images and compare them to past X-rays to see if problems are developing. The dentist will go over any concerns found on the X-rays with the patient and discuss measures to prevent further problems or treat existing conditions.
While digital X-rays use much less radiation than traditional X-rays, patients are still protected with a lead apron. Patients who are pregnant or breastfeeding should tell the dentist at the beginning of the appointment so extra precautions can be used.
Types of X-Rays?
Most patients will have a series of digital X-rays taken, including periapical views to show the entire length of the tooth, bite-wing images of the lower and upper back teeth, a panoramic view of the entire teeth, jaws, and sinuses, and some patients may need a view of the bite, known as the occlusal view.
