A full mouth set of x-rays (FMX) includes 18 intra-oral x-rays of the entire mouth. This survey is the standard of care for all new patients, and is usually repeated approximately every three years. We take both digital and conventional (film) x-rays. The type of x-rays to be taken will be determined based on both student and patient needs.
This appointment/procedure may be done separately from your screening appoint or may be scheduled together and can take anywhere from 30 minutes to 90 minutes depending on the situation. A copy of your x-rays may be mailed or emailed to your personal dentist at the end of your appointment upon request.
A written prescription from your dentist is required for this procedure.
Bitewing x-rays include a set of four x-rays that are used primarily to determine if you have cavities between your back teeth. These x-rays are the standard of care and are usually taken every six months.
