Why We Need X-Rays at Your Consultation

While the Instagram age has everyone taking selfies or slo-mo’s–here at Simply Orthodontics we like to take panos…panoramic x-rays, that is!


Did someone say x-rays? #gasp


It’s true, old fashioned dental x-rays got a bad rap. But x-rays have entered a whole new age with the development of digital imaging technology, which means getting an x-ray emits about the same amount of radiation as spending a day at the beach. #winning




Because we at Simply Orthodontics care about our patients’ health, we invested in the top-notch x-ray machines. Since we own our machines in house, there’s no need to run all over town to get these images like some other orthodontic offices in Irvine.


Even so, unlike the millions of shutter-friendly Instagram addicts, we don’t just take x-rays for no reason. (Seriously…does your breakfast really look that good?) We only take them when absolutely necessary. X-rays help us to see what’s underneath–missing teeth, extra teeth, impacted teeth, shortened roots, etc–which in turn allows Dr. Shung to better diagnose the best course of treatment for you or your child.





Our digital x-rays are always complimentary, and we are happy to print or email them to you (just in case you feel the need to post the ultimate selfie–or just share them with your dentist).


It’s just another way we like to help!
