X-rays (or radiographs) are part of a diagnostic dental exam. X-rays can show cavities and hidden dental structures like wisdom teeth or bone loss that can’t be seen during a visual clinical exam. At Cope Dentistry in Prairie Village, we use digital X-rays that produce around 80% lower levels of radiation than traditional X-rays.
If your previous dentist has taken X-rays within the last six months, you may request that they forward them to our office. If there is not enough time, please pick them up and bring them with you to your appointment. If additional X-rays are necessary, we can take them at our office.
