Routine 2D( periapical and bitewing) x-rays are recommended once per year to evaluate the teeth and need to be done before dental services are rendered. Once every 5 years, a 3D(cone beam) is recommended to evaluate the teeth and everything surrounding the teeth. Dental x-rays are safe for the patient and can be taken directly from the inside of the mouth(intra-oral x-ray) or from the outside of the mouth (extra-oral x-ray). Routine dental x-rays are covered by most insurance providers.
