Digital x-rays or radiographs are performed as part of an annual dental examination to provide a more thorough picture of your mouth. Digital x-rays make it easier for cosmetic dentist Dr. Troy Gombert to diagnose issues that aren't easily visible, 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 concerns that may be diagnosed with x-rays including cavities, decay, abscesses, cysts, bone atrophy, and impactions. If these issues are identified in the early stages, you may have more treatment options that are less invasive. As part of your annual exam at Dr. Gombert's private practice in Chandler, AZ, digital imaging will help us diagnose and correct dental problems.

"I am a new patient of Dr. Gombert’s and specifically went to him for veneers to correct cracks, chips and yellowing that happens with age. Not only was he able to make a fantastic smile, but also identified some underlying issues that needed attention before placing permanent veneers. Through the whole process he could not of been more attentive and caring. He explained the procedures with great detail and there were no surprises. His skill and passion can definitely been seen in my new smile. I couldn’t be more thrilled that I chose to trust Dr. Gombert with my new teeth!"- D.A. / Healthgrades / Feb 11, 2020

Typically, digital imaging are included in an annual dental examination. Digital x-rays may be performed for prevention or if you are concerned about a specific problem. Even though digital x-rays emit significantly less radiation compared to traditional film x-rays, our team tries to limit each patient's exposure. Although digital x-rays are generally safe for all patients, female patients who are breastfeeding or pregnant should inform Dr. Gombert at the start of their dental exam so special cautionary steps may be taken.
What to Expect
Generally performed at the start of your appointment, digital imaging takes around 5 – 10 minutes to do. Many patients will get a set of x-rays to show the needed sections. Once they are done, they will be uploaded to be viewed by you and Dr. Gombert throughout your exam. He can show you any issues and talk about possible treatments.
A set of x-rays will usually be done annually at your dental examination. At certain exams, a full mouth set may be needed for a complete view of your teeth, gums, and oral bones. Your x-rays will be saved with other information so Dr. Gombert can identify trends and address any growing concerns.
Generally, dental insurance plans will pay for digital x-ray costs as part of an annual dental examination. Our office can talk to your insurance to calculate potential payments. If you have any remaining costs or if you are not using insurance, our practice accepts several methods of payment and we can assist you with finding financing.
Digital imaging is a useful tool that can help to diagnose developing health conditions. As a part of an annual dental examination, digital x-rays can give Dr. Gombert an in-depth understanding that allows him to catch hidden problems to be treated before you feel pain.
