Digital x-rays or radiographs are performed as part of a dental exam to provide a more thorough picture of your mouth. Digital x-rays make it easier for our skilled dental team to diagnose issues that aren't easily visible and to understand more about your oral health by showing the interior of your teeth, gums, and jawbone. There are many dental concerns that may be diagnosed with x-rays, including cavities, decay, abscesses, cysts, bone loss, and tooth impaction. If these issues are identified in the early stages, you may have more treatment options that are less invasive. As part of your dental exam at SEDA Dental of Pompano Beach in Pompano Beach, FL, digital imaging will help our team diagnose and correct dental problems.

"Without a doubt the absolute best experience possible. I was referred by a friend, thank God I was. From the very 1st phone call, Asly was tremendous, got my son in right away. My son for various reasons had rotted teeth. After spending a fortune on bridges, extractions, etc.. no other dentist leveled with me that he Had week teeth that would continue to get worse. He was in such severe pain for so long. Infections, absesses. Rot. I decided the most economical and permanent solution that I could afford was total extraction and dentures. I took him for quotes, typical xray,Nonpersonal attention, just another mouth.Took him to Seda $4000 less. And the caring office manager, Fernanda worked with me for over an hour, applying for financing. She finally set me up with a payment plan orI would have been unable to help my son.After explaining my situation they didn't even charge for his consultation. His dentist Dr. Hanna Butenko was beyond fantastic. All other quotes were pull all teeth at once. Stick In the permanent denture, with putty, then 6 months later come back to see how his jaw adjusted and re-putty, and all money immediately. Wow, Dr. Hanna, saw the horrible mess in my sons mouth. Set up 3 separate appts. One week apart, she saidIt would be way too painful to do all at onceAnd because of the extent of damage some Would be very difficult extractions. And may I say what a knowledgable caring lady. Well three weeks later, I'm sitting at lunch,Final teeth coming out as I write this. And he will be leaving today with his tempatoryDentures, he would not go out because of his teeth. Cant wait to see him really smile again.Three months from now he goes back, they see how his jaws have adjusted AND make him his permanent set! The reason this is so long and detailed is because, I know due to todays culture and poor choices, many young men have rotted hurting teeth, and think there's no answer. Seda also offers all the other options, butDont give up, our choice worked for us, and was affordable. Fernanda & Asly are like family, make my 29 year old son & I feel welcome and special. They know us by name and they should be proud of there courteous. Fun yet professionall manner. Lastly, I cannot Say enough about Dr. Butenko. She comes out of the back to personally see me each visitNot to mention, you will never see 3 more Pretty, really caring and a joy to see each timeYoung wmen.They treat you like family!!!And I havent even met Dr. Hill yet, who my friend said was exceptional. Ther is no other place I will ever go. My other son is next!!!They get 5 out of 5. Not a fair scale, really10 out of 5 stars."- G.K. / Google / Jun 20, 2019
Typically, digital images 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, SEDA Dental of Pompano Beach 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 our team 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 our dentist throughout your exam. We can show you any issues and talk about possible treatments.
A set of x-rays will usually be obtained at your annual 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 at SEDA Dental of Pompano Beach so our team can identify issues 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, SEDA Dental of Pompano Beach accepts several methods of payment, and we can assist you in 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 our team an in-depth understanding that allows us to catch hidden problems to be treated before you feel pain.
