What are digital dental x-rays?
Digital dental x-rays or dental radiographs are administered as part of an annual exam to provide a more thorough picture of your teeth and gums. They allow our professional team at Madison Avenue Dentists to diagnose problems that are not visible by the naked eye and to understand more about your oral health by showing the interior of your mouth, including the teeth, gums, and jaw. There are many dental and oral concerns that can be diagnosed with digital dental images, including tooth decay, cavities, cysts, abscesses, bone loss, and tooth impaction. If these problems are identified early, you can be treated more efficiently with more treatment options. During your annual dental examination in our New York, NY office, digital dental imaging will help the team diagnose and treat oral health issues.
How are digital dental x-rays taken?
Often done at the beginning of your appointment, digital dental x-rays take around 5 – 10 minutes to do in our New York, NY office. The x-rays are quick and painless, involving both intraoral (inside the mouth) and extraoral (outside of the mouth) images. Many patients will have a series of dental x-rays to show the various sections of the mouth. Once complete, they will be uploaded to be viewed by you and a member of our dental team at Madison Avenue Dentists during your appointment. We will assess any abnormalities and go over treatment options after the x-rays are viewed.

WOW!! So, I did a dental search on the best Prosthodontist offices in New York City, and it gives me great joy to see my two outstanding colleagues be on the top. I had the honor of graduating with Dr. Oh and Dr. Estefan from New York University College of Dentistry. I have an Endodontic practice in upstate New York, and now I have an office that has the best quality Prosthodontist to send some of our New York City patients for dental care. Congratulations on such an outstanding achievement, you guys make our dental school so proud. xo Dr. Luz Mejia (Bailey). PS I wish I can give you guys +10 stars!!

Digital Dental X-rays FAQs
How often should I receive digital dental x-rays?
For the average patient, we usually recommend receiving new dental x-rays about once every year. However, in some unique cases, x-rays may be required more frequently. These x-rays are generally performed during a general exam.
What is shown in a digital dental x-ray?
Typically, we utilize digital dental x-rays in order to identify whether or not there is any decay within the teeth themselves. This allows us to notice and treat small problems before they grow into larger issues. Without x-rays, many of these problems would likely go undiscovered until the patient begins to feel pain or sickness.
Are digital dental x-rays covered by insurance?
Most dental insurance plans should cover most or all of the cost of an annual digital dental x-ray. This is due to their crucial part in maintaining the overall health of the mouth and gums. We can work with patients without insurance to find a financing plan that will fit their budget.
