  • “ I have had the best experience with Dr. Domingue and his staff! He's kind, professional, and is extremely involved with every aspect of the patient care. His staff is one of the friendliest I have ever met. They don't only work in your mouth, they form real professional relationships. Dr. Domingue recently told me he was going to work with my time because, "you are way busier than I am". What a humble statement! I was so impressed when he recently shared that he was going on a mission trip to serve in Mexico. I think he is a gift to the lafayette community, and everyone needs to know.”

Is dental imaging safe?

Dental imaging has always been one of the lowest radiation emitting styles of x-rays in the medical world. Additionally, not all of the imaging we do is x-ray based. We also use photography for diagnosis and photography does not have a radiation risk.

When dentistry began the big switch over from traditional to digital dental x-rays, one of the greatest benefits was the lower radiation. The images also provided unprecedented clarity and sharpness. With digital imaging, our dentists can manipulate your dental x-rays, increasing the contrast and changing colors in order to make certain dental conditions easier to diagnose.

In many cases, you receive a bigger dose of radiation from space by walking outside than you do from regular digital dental x-rays. When we set the machines to take pictures, we use the lowest radiation setting possible in order to still create an accurate image.

We also only take the x-rays needed for diagnosis. Typically, that means once a year unless you experience a problem.

While it seems like we take a lot more pictures than in the old days, know that our methods of diagnosis are paying off. People are keeping their teeth longer than ever, as dentistry has become a profession of prevention.
