The Deal

  • $16 for a comprehensive dental exam with necessary x-rays ($210 value)

Exam includes a thorough and comprehensive examination and evaluation of existing dental work, all tooth surfaces checked for tooth decay, cracks and erosion, an aesthetic smile evaluation, gum disease evaluation, oral cancer screening, and a bite evaluation. A set of diagnostic full mouth radiographs (x-rays) will be taken, if necessary, to determine dental problems not visible during dental examination.

Dental X-rays: Revealing Invisible Objects Within the Shadows

This deal includes a set of x-rays, which helps the dentist root out cavities and other issues. Check out Groupon’s overview to learn how these invisible rays apply to smiles.

Take a walk down the spectrum of electromagnetic radiation—past the radio waves on your FM dial, past the microwaves in your kitchen, past the visible light waves all around you—and eventually you’ll come to x-ray waves. Although they’re best known for helping superheroes tell which cereal boxes have the best toys, when directed at a special film or digital sensor these rays give dentists insight into the hidden features and spaces in their patients’ mouths. 

As the x-ray waves travel, they must first pass through objects—in this case, a series of soft tissues, such as gums, and dense bone, namely teeth. The rays pass easily through softer tissue, but the denser material absorbs the rays before they reach the film, causing them to appear as bright, conspicuous walls of white on the final exposure. In most cases, dentists use bite-wing x-rays to capture a detailed view of teeth from gums to crown; placed directly in the mouth, the film or sensor provides a close-up view of every crevice and cavity. The resulting image—called a radiograph—is one of dentists’ most valuable diagnostic tools, allowing them to pinpoint areas of decay between teeth or under existing fillings, reveal potential issues in the root canal, or uncover any discrete abnormalities such as cysts. Dental x-rays emit very low levels of radiation—digital machines even less—but dentists nevertheless limit most patients to one session every one to three years.

Customer Reviews

This was hands down my best experience with a dentist and I am quite anxious about dental exams! Sandy at the front desk is so friendly, personable and also is efficient at reminder for upcoming appointments. Dr. McGuire immediately put me at ease with his relaxed yet thorough bedside manner. He does everything himself including X rays and cleaning. My initial appointment was to repair a chipped tooth, and it looks great! While the appointment takes more time then my previous dentists, I feel that it is definitely worth it!
