Are dental x-rays safe for my family?

Dental x-rays emit very small amounts of radiation while images are taken. Our office employs stringent measures to ensure you and your family are safe during your visit. We use digital radio graphic technology to reduce radiation.

Do my children need dental sealants?

Dental sealants are invisible protective barriers placed on healthy teeth to prevent them from developing decay. Sealants are applied to the crevices of the chewing surfaces on the teeth where bacteria often accumulate. Sealants are highly effective when placed on the teeth during childhood shortly after the teeth have erupted from the gums. These protective barriers can last for many years and save hundreds of dollars in future dental treatment costs.
