We recommend that our adult patients have a full mouth series of dental x-rays or a panorex taken once every 5 years. In between those times, yearly routine x-rays (bitewings) are taken for most of our patients, adults and children. The x-rays help Dr. Fishbaine diagnose any dental issues or the beginning of an issue. All of our x-rays are digital. This allows us to capture crisp, clear images at significantly reduced exposure times as compared to x-ray film.
