At Harlow Dental, our number one priority has always been the health and safety of our patients. As a leading healthcare provided in our community, we wanted to reach out to all of our patients regarding the COVID-19 virus, and let you know the steps we are taking to alleviate any potential concerns. Effective immediately, Harlow Dental practices will limit our practice to EMERGENCY DENTAL CARE. So please call us right away if you are experiencing a dental emergency!

We are postponing all non-urgent dental care at this time in accordance with the recommendations of the American Dental Association and the North Carolina State Board in an effort to mitigate the spread of COVID-19. The preventative measure will be in effect until April 16, 2020. Again, thank you for being a valued member of the Harlow Dental family. We appreciate your continued trust and confidence. Together we can overcome these challenging circumstances and continue your path to greater oral health! We look forward to taking care of you at your next scheduled appointment.

How often do I need x-rays?

 

dental xrays | charlotte nc dentistMany patients wonder if dental x-rays are safe and necessary, and the answer to both questions is yes. At Harlow Dental at Steele Creek, we utilize digital x-rays because they expose our patients to 80 percent less radiation than traditional film x-rays taken in the past. They are also immediately available so that Dr. Harlow can make the earliest possible diagnosis resulting in less invasive procedures. 

Our Dental X-Ray Recommendation

Bite-wing x-rays are recommended once per year. This gives us a baseline and a good look at what's going on internally with your teeth. Generally, four to six x-rays will show changes between your teeth and two exams per year with Dr. Harlow will ensure you are at optimal oral health. Every three to five years, a full mouth series of 18 x-rays are taken to maintain a full updated record of your mouth.

Digital x-rays are not just safer for our patients, they are also less harmful to the environment since they require no chemicals for development. They are also easy to transfer and share with other providers who may be involved with your healthcare.
