Digital x-rays, also known as digital radiographs, are taken in a dental exam to allow for a better view of your oral health. X-rays allow our team to diagnose concerns that are not visible by the naked eye and to learn about the health of the inside of your teeth, gums, and jawbone. There are several oral health conditions that can be seen on digital images, such as decay, cavities, cysts, abscesses, bone loss, and tooth impaction. When these conditions are discovered early, they may have more effective and less invasive treatment options. During your dental exam at SEDA Dental in Boynton Beach, FL, x-rays will help to accurately diagnose and treat oral health conditions.

The results are fantastic. My before and after are amazing. The Zoom process was so quick and efficient. In and out in 2 hours! I can't think of a better way and better place to get my teeth whitened!"- D.S. / Google / Jun 25, 2019
"Dr. Rubenstein worked his magic with me...a very anxious and full of fear patient. His dental surgical technique was gentle and literally, pain free. The office staff was so kind and understanding. After my surgery, I did not have any pain...didn’t even have to take Tylenol. Best experience at the Dentist for me, ever!"- D.S. / Google / Jun 19, 2019
"It was my first visit to Seda and I can't begin to tell you how Dr. Rubinstein took away all of my fear & anxiety about going to a dentist. I was actually in panic mode when I went in for my tooth extraction. Dr. Rubinstein & his dental assistants made me feel extremely comfortable. After novocaine, within 6 mins the tooth was out & I was asking "when he will be done" because I felt NOTHING ! I heard nothing crunching in my head like prior extractions.. I could not believe he said you are all done including the stitch !I drove up to Boyton from Hallandale because I had heard so much about that office. They are now my official dental office even though they have an office closer to me. My cleaning is in 2 weeks & we are working on a program for the 3 implants I will need over the next year or so..Thank you Dr Rubinstein ! And I would be remiss if I did not mention the staff from the office workers to the dental assistants, all had extremely happy faces & were a pleasure to deal with.."- J.W. / Google / Jun 13, 2019

In general, x-rays are a part of your dental exam. They can be administered as part of a preventive dental treatment plan or if you are experiencing pain in your mouth. Though digital x-rays use less radiation than film x-rays, SEDA Dental likes to minimize patient exposure. While they are usually safe for any patient, women who are breastfeeding or may be pregnant should talk to our team at the beginning of the appointment so extra precautions can be taken.
What to Expect
Often done at the beginning of your dental exam, digital x-rays take about 5 – 10 minutes to complete. Most patients will have a series of x-rays taken to include all areas. After they are complete, they are uploaded and can be viewed by you and our team during your examination. We will assess if there are any areas of concern and go over treatment options.
A series of digital images will generally be performed once a year at your dental exam. For some visits, a whole mouth series may be performed to get a more comprehensive view of the teeth, gums, and jaw. Your digital images will be stored with your oral health file at SEDA Dental so we can view changes over time and chart any developing problems.
Usually, dental insurance will include and cover digital imaging costs as part of a dental exam. Our office will contact your insurance company to estimate any balances. For any out-of-pocket expenses or if you do not have dental insurance, SEDA Dental accepts many payment methods, and we can give you information on medical financing.
X-rays are an advanced technology that can help diagnose hidden oral issues. As a step in a regular dental exam, they are able to provide a unique view and allows for a diagnosis of developing conditions to be corrected before becoming painful. For improved dental health, contact our office in Boynton Beach, FL to schedule your next dental exam with x-rays.
