Dental X-Rays

Dental X-Rays in Falls Church, VA

Traditional dental examinations provide valuable diagnostic information about the state of your oral health. Dental radiographs, or x-rays, complete this picture, providing dentists with images of the underlying structures of your smile. With dental X-rays, Dr. Robert Morabito personalizes treatment plans to address all of your dental concerns.

Proactive Care with Dental X-Raysdental x-rays

At our Falls Church dental office, we strongly advocate the use of dental radiography to detect abnormalities that are not easily spotted with a visual examination alone. Left untreated, small dental problems can develop into complex issues. Early detection allows Dr. Morabito to recommend a variety of conservative treatments that are catered to your comfort and budget.

Dental x-rays allow for early detection of the following:

  • Abscesses or cysts
  • Bone loss 
  • Tumors, non-cancerous and cancerous
  • Decay between teeth
  • Developmental abnormalities
  • Impacted or poorly positioned teeth and roots
  • Problems inside a tooth or below the gum line

Are Dental X-Rays Safe?

In keeping with our commitment to patient health and safety, our team is dedicated to minimizing radiation exposure during dental x-rays. Our Falls Church dentist protects patients’ bodies from excess radiation with lead apron shields. We also use modern, quick processing film that speeds up the imaging process, cutting down exposure time while collecting accurate, comprehensive images.

How Often Will You Need Dental X-Rays?

Your individual dental health needs determine the need for dental x-rays. For new patients, a full mouth series of images is recommended. This gives a complete view of your smile that can be used for three to five years. At check-up visits, bite-wing x-rays are provided to detect dental concerns shown by initial radiographs of the top and bottom teeth.

Dr. Morabito takes your medical and dental history into account, along with findings from your oral examination. We also consider the presence of symptoms, age, and risk factors for disease to decide on an appropriate amount of dental radiography.

Testimonials

Dr. Morabito and your wonderful staff - Thank you so much for your kind, welcoming, and kid-friendly attention you gave me and my sons when we came in for the Harrison's 1st dental checkup. Thanks again and keep up the good work.

The Harrisons

Dr. Morabito is an awesome dentist, a great personality with the hift of humor, he is personable, and amazingly manages to choose the very best people to work for him. They are all excellent and most of all - caring and genuine. And with my dental problems, believe me I have had my share of being treated like a "number." I recently flew back to Falls Church from Kansas City to have him do my implants, because I don't trust anyone else.
