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.

"Best Dentist and Staff I've ever been to! ( I'm in my 60's!) Always have taken care of my teeth! At King House Dental I've not only taken care of them but improved them. Had to have cleaning's ever 3-4 months from receding gum's coffee, etc. Just had a failing bridge replaced and my bottom five front teeth capped. Total of eight. Best investment I've ever made! I highly recommend KING HOUSE DENTAL ! I have to say Thank You Doctor T! and the great people that work with him for my new smile that I'm very proud of!Mike Coleman"- M.C. / Google / Feb 04, 2020
"Like many people, I too have dental anxiety. We moved to Redlands a year ago and we were in the process of finding a new dentist right before Covid hit and once it did I put finding one on the back burner. Eventually I started to ask around and read wonderful things about Dr. T and his staff which led me to do more online research that only reaffirmed what a mutual friend had shared with me. From the very first phone call they were very attentive and kind. The dental office that I had visited before had told me that I needed an incredible amount of work done and STRONGLY encouraged me to fill out a credit application through their office to pay for what I supposedly needed so that was in the back of my mind when I went for my initial visit and I while I was worried about my dental visit, I was also worried about what it was going to cost as well! I did need several things done BUT it was a 1/3 of the cost of what I had been quoted and Dr. T was very transparent about the services he was going to provide which included a tooth extraction and 2 crowns and not an extended list of random things that were not necessary per the other dental office! I've had all of my work completed, the staff was incredibly friendly and I felt safe, especially with Covid numbers being so high in this area. I am thankful that we found a dentist that was honest and that made us feel welcomed which is not something my family and I have felt since we have moved here. Now both my husband and I are patients of Dr. T. and we will continue to have King House Dental take care of all of our needs. Thank you Dr. T and his staff for being wonderful people!"- J.P. / Google / Jan 18, 2021

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.
