Digital X-Rays Overview
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.

"Dr.T has been my dentist for 5 years. I have never felt more comfortable being at the dentist. Dr. T is so patient and really takes the time to explain my treatment to me. The staff is friendly, knowledgeable and efficient. I live a much healthier lifestyle after wearing an oral appliance Dr. T recommended for my sleep apnea. I am a patient of King House Dental Group for life and will recommend Dr. T to all my friends and family."- D.R. / Yelp / Jun 08, 2020

All our wedding pictures came out fantastic. Very professional office and staff. Very reasonable prices since I didn’t have insurance. I have changed my dentist ever since and have been going to king house dental for all my dental needs. I highly recommend king house dental."- A.T. / Yelp / Jun 07, 2020
Digital X-Rays Treatment
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.
Digital X-Rays Pricing
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.
