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.

"Before coming to King House Dental, I was really nervous about the dentist. My previous experiences have not been the best and have left me with major anxiety. King House dental is wonderful. Literally every one of the staff members was friendly and inviting. The place itself is very nice and cute. Dr. T didn't make me feel rushed but was very informative and addressed my anxiety. I only have great things to say about them!"- J.C. / Yelp / Mar 10, 2020
"I am someone who strongly dislikes going to a dentist. When I first went to King House Dental I hadn't been to a dentist in many years. The staff are all so nice and compassionate they made me feel welcome and at ease seeing a dentist again. Dr T is very professional and explains your dental hygiene and needs in a clear and concise manner. He has a great sense of humor. He is very patient and understanding. I would recommend King House to everyone, especially those who have avoided going to a dentist for fear of having someone with sharp implements and needles navigating in your mouth. Great location in Redlands also. Thanks Dr. T and your amazing staff for all your good work."- G.C. / Yelp / Feb 18, 2020
"Like many, I'm not very fond of going to the dentist. I can now say I dont mind time & time again going to King House Dentist. All the staff at KHD made my family & I feel like we're apart of their family. Dr. T is outstanding & made me feel so at ease with the level of anxiety & fear I had. All staff are so kind. I couldn't be happier that I finally found a dentist that not only do I trust but who's work is exactly what I was looking to find. When Dr. T did finished my cosmetic procedures of correcting my smile the way I wanted, I seriously wanted to cry because I have not seen my teeth look that amazing in years. I can't stop smiling now. Thank you Dr. T & Staff :) LOVE THIS PLACE!"- J.R. / Yelp / Feb 13, 2020
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.
