Why do I need to have x-rays taken?

Image of a patient in a dental office receiving an xrayAlthough we do a very thorough examination of your teeth and surrounding tissue, we are unable to see some areas without the use of dental x-rays. In order to correctly diagnose the conditions of these areas, Dr. Kim may prescribe that x-rays be taken. At Jen Kim dentistry, we understand your concerns regarding radiation. To minimize that, we use digital x-rays, which greatly reduces your exposure to radiation.
