About Digital X-Rays
A state-of-the-art dental health facility, MINT dentistry in Cypress, TX believes in the importance of utilizing advanced techniques and technology for a comprehensive examination. This is why MINT dentistry uses digital x-rays, also known as digital radiographs, as part of every dental exam to obtain a better view of your oral health. Digital x-rays help our staff of board-certified dental professionals to diagnose problems that are below the visible surface so they can better understand your oral health, including your gums, teeth, and jaw. Several oral health problems can be discovered with digital x-rays, such as tooth decay, cavities, cysts, abscesses, bone loss, and tooth impaction. If an issue is detected in the early stages, you will likely have more options for treatment that are less invasive and more effective. During your dental examination, digital x-rays allow us to more accurately diagnose and treat oral health issues.

"This place was amazing! From the moment you walk in till the moment I was walked up to the front, the staff continuously made sure I was doing fine. Every step of the appointment was explained to me so I knew exactly what to expect next. I was greeted with lots of smiles when I first walked in by the front desk Brandon. He gave me lots of mint goodies which I loved. Beats earphones, sunglasses, and an ipad. There was no wait time. Before I could even pick a movie on netflix I was already being brought back. The dental chair is a massage chair and it made me feel so relaxed. Catching up on my tv show and getting a massage while getting my teeth examined was so much fun. Dr. Tum did my exam, and she was quick and very knowledgeable. The assistants Carlos, Neta, Ashley, Areej were so quick and efficient with taking my xrays and whitening impressions. Lizzy the hygienist did my cleaning, and she was wonderful. She is very sweet, quick, and thorough. The office manager Jessica was fabulous right when you walked in she made me feel so important and comfortable. Jessica & Brandon the treatment coordinators was great! They were able to give me some great prices on my same day treatment! I had no choice but to stay for the same day treatment, bc the prices were unbeatable not to stay. The whole mint dentistry cypress team were amazing. They def exceeded my expectations, and I def recommend this dental office to anyone who is looking for a new dental home. Thank you Mint dentistry I can't wait to come back for my next routine visit!!! I'm glad I gave you guys a try. I left with whitening trays, sunglasses, chapstick, lipstick, and lots of oral hygiene tools...you can't beat that!"- J.N. / Google / Aug 14, 2019

In most cases, digital x-rays are done at your annual examination as a preventive measure. You may also need digital x-rays taken when you are experiencing pain or concerned about symptoms so we can correctly diagnose then treat your problem. Digital x-rays emit less radiation compared to traditional x-rays, but we still prefer to limit the amount of exposure that is delivered to every patient. While digital x-rays are considered safe for any patient, female patients who are breastfeeding or pregnant should tell their team before x-rays are taken so that extra precautions can be taken.
What to Expect
When it's time for your exam, you can relax in a massaging treatment chair. After you decide whether to listen to your favorite jams on our Beats headphones or to watch a show on a flat-screen television, we will take your digital x-rays. Often performed at the start of your dental visit, digital x-rays typically take about 5 – 10 minutes to complete. In most situations, we will take images that include all of your teeth. After the images are complete, they can be viewed immediately, so your dentist can analyze the images throughout your exam. Should we find any problems, your MINT dentist will show you the issue and discuss your treatment options.
A new set of digital x-rays will typically be taken twice a year at your dental exam. During some visits, a whole mouth series may be taken to give us a more complete view of your teeth, gums, and jawbone. Your digital x-rays will be kept in your file, so we can watch for subtle changes and identify any areas of concern. There isn't any specific aftercare required following digital x-rays unless you are told by your dentist. Another appointment may be scheduled if a procedure is required. We always suggest daily home care plus attending your twice-yearly cleanings and dental exams to keep your smile healthy and beautiful.
The MINT Commitment
Typically, a dental insurance plan wll pay for the cost of digital x-rays as part of a routine dental exam. We will contact your insurance provider to figure out if you will have any additional costs. For any out-of-pocket expenses or if you don't have dental insurance, MINT dentistry takes many different methods of payment, including medical financing. MINT dentistry is dedicated to making sure that you have a thorough oral health examination every year at our office. Using state-of-the-art technology, such as digital x-rays, helps us to honor that commitment.
