Dental x-rays are critical tools that we use in order to diagnose and treat our patients. While a clinical exam of the teeth is necessary and very informative, we need dental x-rays in order to get a complete picture of the health of the teeth and gums.
With the above considerations in mind, understand that we only take x-rays when necessary. We use digital x-rays with XDR equipment because digital films are safer, faster, and more accurate than traditional wet films.
With digital x-rays we:
(a) use significantly less radiation
(b) have much faster exposure times
(c) have high-resolution digital images for review
If you have questions about digital x-rays or when and why we take x-rays, please don’t hesitate to ask. We want to provide you with the most accurate diagnoses and treatments in the safest and most affordable way possibleGet in Touch
I love the compassion and quality of care you guys give. However the last visit I had my regular cleaning and went to check out only to find out that there was a additional charge. I Fully expected to pay for the Nitrous but the additional charge I was never told of prior to check out..thanks
I absolutely love this dental practice, and I have had a phobic fear of dental procedures my entire life!, ( terrible experience as a child). The waiting lobby is inviting, spacious, very clean, calming and well appointed, as are all of the treatment rooms. Also, EVERY member of the staff is extremely personable, knowledgeable, and thorough, they know their stuff! Lastly, Dr. Washington is a wonderfully competent and confident dentist. He has an excellent chair-side manner. He thoroughly explains each procedure. And, he is also has a gentle touch,and is very respectful of my mouth. In short, I highly recommend Lake Lanier Smiles!
People are always nice and professional. Dr Washington is very competent and helpful.
The staff is very professional. The hygienist is great, I did not feel like my teeth were being pulled while being cleaned like i have with previous dental offices. Dr Washington was great as well, very professional and caring. I highly recommend this Practice to anyone. I had a bad experience with another Dental office where the Dentist drilled through my tooth into my gum and nerves. I do not have that fear coming to this office and will be returning there to have some more work done very soon! Thank You for helping me overcome my fear of the chair Lake Lanier Smiles.
