  • “ 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.”

Are digital x-rays safe?

Dental X-Ray | Dentist in LafayetteDrs. Smith and Domingue use digital dental x-rays to diagnose and accurately be able to treat many dental conditions you may have. Typically, unless you encounter a problem, you will probably only have one set of x-rays each year.

The number of x-rays may vary depending on your age, the amount of dentistry you have, and how long it has been since you have had necessary x-rays. In other words, Drs. Smith and Domingue will only take the number of x-rays necessary to see your teeth above and below the gum line accurately. Usually, the number of x-rays is between eight and eighteen for adults.

With the introduction of digital x-rays, the amount of radiation necessary was reduced dramatically. An added benefit of digital dental x-rays is the ability to immediately see the image on-screen. Drs. Smith and Domingue can use their x-ray software to zoom in or change contrast in order to effectively and accurately diagnose conditions early. It is hard to believe how far dental imaging has come in the last twenty years.

Dental x-rays are among the lowest radiation x-rays of all diagnostic imaging in medical procedures. In fact, the radiation is so minimal, if you live in certain parts of the country, you get more radiation from the sun than you do from a full mouth x-ray.

When you weigh the risks versus the benefits, it is easy to see how valuable dental x-rays are for your health. If you have any other concerns about x-rays or digital imaging, please feel free to ask us.
