Woman Getting A Dental X-RayDr. Bussell can identify a number of oral conditions during your comprehensive dental exam. Because enamel is covering each tooth, he cannot always detect what is happening beneath the surface. A dental x-ray will reveal more than is visible to the naked eye alone.

Why X-Rays Help

Without dental x-rays, a small cavity can spread under the enamel, deteriorating the interior of your tooth and even affecting the nerve. By monitoring your health routinely with x-rays, we can stop this progression. Since we use digital dental x-rays, our patients are receiving the safest and most accurate x-rays available today.

Digital x-rays work very much like a digital camera, delivering a high-resolution image immediately to the treatment room monitor for Dr. Bussell to review and to assist him in diagnosis.

Your Safety & Comfort Is Our Top Priority in Royal Palm Beach

Because they emit up to 80 percent less radiation than traditional x-rays, digital dental x-rays are one of the safest medical x-rays used today. You will absorb more radiation by being outside on a sunny afternoon.

We recommend dental x-rays based on the needs of our patients. We will typically take bitewings on a yearly basis and a full-mouth series every 3-5 years, depending on your dental history.

Dr. Bussell and his team strive to make high-quality dentistry accessible to all patients, including ensuring that treatment procedures fit comfortably into your budget. After all, it's in our name, Affordable Dental Center of Wellington!

Not all procedures require anesthetic. Dr. Bussell will discuss whether you will feel more comfortable with anesthetic or if it’s possible to have your procedure without it. 

For small fillings, sealants, and bonding, anesthetic may not be required as only the enamel of the teeth require preparation. For deeper decay, crowns, implants, and extractions, we recommend that you opt to be completely numb so that you feel comfortable during your procedure.

Injections can cause minimal discomfort with the proper delivery technique. Dr. Bussell has spent years perfecting his injection technique so that patients can enjoy a pain-free experience.

Topical numbing agent – Dr. Bussell will numb the tissue before he numbs your tooth. This will practically eliminate discomfort from your injection. Applying a topical anesthetic and waiting for it to take effect will dramatically improve your experience.

Slow anesthetic delivery – Delivering anesthetic slowly reduces discomfort. Since patient comfort is our top priority, Dr. Bussell will take his time, delivering the anesthetic in small doses to make the process more comfortable.
