dental xray | Dentist Glendale Ca YES. When needed though.

Not every single time you come in or just because the insurance pays for it. But generally as a first-time patient, we need a reference of where your oral condition is. There is so much that we as dentists cannot see under the gums, under the bone, underneath old fillings or crowns or restorations. It's irresponsible to do any kind of exam without relevant X-rays. Dosage is an issue...we don't want to zap you unnecessarily or too heavily.

Our X-Ray Technology

Our machines are new and calibrated so that the dosage is kept to the minimal amount needed to get good resolution on the images. But we never do them unless we need to. You can't have a physical at the doctor's office without a blood test, right? They can't just look at you and give you an accurate assessment or diagnosis. Neither can dentists. The x-rays serve to let us know what's "under the hood" and gives me the information to give you the best treatment options and the best treatment with minimal surprises.

Professional Dental Exams in Glendale

If you have any concerns or questions regarding X-rays, please call Dr Kim at the office.  

 

Insurance paperwork | Dentist Glendale CAIf you have an FSA/HSA account or dental benefits that go on a calendar year, using them for any kind of dental work is a good idea. Mainly because if you don't use them, you'll lose them.  If you have a lot of dental issues that you'd like to address, then overlapping the treatment and benefits for the end of this year and the beginning of next year when they reset is a good way to maximize the insurance as well.
