Dental X-Rays


X-rays are a valuable tool for diagnosis and prevention.  They provide a map of your tooth and root positions that determine your best method of dental care.  X-rays also reveal any abnormalities in your mouth, such as cancer, tooth decay, or an abscess.

Patients sometimes ask us if x-rays are safe.

How safe are dental x-rays?

Dental x-rays give off a very low level of radiation and are considered by professionals to be safe and necessary.  All people are exposed to natural radiation in the environment.  Your dental x-ray series at Montgomery Dentistry is the equivalent of a single day’s exposure to natural resources.

In addition, our dentists make every effort to limit a patient’s exposure to radiation from dental x-ray exams.  Such efforts include administering a lead apron during the exam and using high quality film that greatly reduces the x-ray exposure.

Our Patients Know We Care


“I have always had very good service with Dr. Buettner and his staff. He is very knowledgeable and is always able to handle anything I might need in dental care. I am 76 years old and have had a lot of dental work done, and I appreciate the way he takes care of me.”
