X-rays are an invaluable tool that helps Dr. Cradduck detect many dental conditions in their earliest stages. Many patients have concerns about the safety of x-rays, and we want to assure you that at Hagerstown Family Dental we use digital x-rays, which emit 80% less radiation for patients than traditional x-rays. Digital imaging is also safer for the environment because there are no harsh chemicals required for developing them.
Digital x-rays are readily available to review, so Dr. Cradduck can discuss any pertinent treatment needs with you right away. We recommend that you have standard bitewing x-rays taken at least once each year in order to monitor your oral health.
