Digital X-Rays Reviews
"Dentists should be listed as primary care providers, I see Dr. Weller 3 times a year for cleanings. He’s invested the latest technology in his two offices as well as educating himself and staff. He’s corrected my bite as well as well as made me a night guard. He correctly diagnosed acid reflux as the reason for wear and tear on my teeth. Oh, to those who brag they never had a cavity... 😉"- M.M. / Google / Aug 07, 2019
"My apologies for not updating my almost ten year old review. During that time I've been in his dental chair dozens of times, from cleanings and xrays to crowns and implants, and continue to think he's the best there is. How convinced am I? We've moved to Maui, but still get our dental work done by Dr. Weller in Chicago. I have complete confidence in him and his recommendations. His staff - Tina, Jamie, and everyone else, are 100% professional. From appointments, to cleanings, to billing, to followup, everything works as you hope a professional organization would but seldom does."- D.S. / Yelp / May 22, 2018
"I enjoyed a first class experience starting with a welcoming office staff, a detailed patient history review, cleaning and x-rays. Dr. Weller gave me a thorough assessment and educated me on the details to provide a permanent solution for an existing problem. I left the office with every question answered and an action plan in place."- K.B. / Google / May 31, 2019
"I have recommended Dr. Weller before, so I will not dwell on his outstanding professional skills and knowledge. Having just visited again, I feel I must comment on the state of the art procedures, treatments, and equipment his office has in place for protection from COVID. I have never felt safer outside of my home-"- S.G. / Facebook / Sep 29, 2020

WHAT ARE DIGITAL X-RAYS?
Digital X-rays, also known as radiographs, are an integral part of your dental examination. They provide a detailed and in-depth view of your oral health. Dr. Jeffrey Weller, our experienced dentist, relies on these X-rays to detect concerns that may not be visible to the naked eye.
By revealing the inner workings of your teeth, jawbone, and gums, digital X-rays are an essential diagnostic tool. They enable us to identify various oral health conditions, such as decay, cavities, abscesses, cysts, bone loss, and impactions. Detecting these issues in their early stages opens the door to more effective and less invasive treatment options. In both our Chicago and Hinsdale offices, X-rays are a cornerstone of our dental exams, ensuring that Dr. Weller can provide accurate diagnoses and personalized treatment plans tailored to your unique needs
AM I A CANDIDATE?
For the majority of our patients, X-rays are a standard inclusion in your dental examination. Digital X-rays may be conducted as part of a preventive dental treatment plan or in response to concerns about oral discomfort. It's worth noting that digital X-rays emit significantly less radiation than traditional film X-rays, prioritizing your safety. While they are generally safe for all patients, we exercise extra caution with our female patients who are breastfeeding or may be pregnant. We recommend discussing your situation with Dr. Weller at the outset of your appointment to ensure your well-being.
WHAT TO EXPECT?
Digital imaging is typically performed at the beginning of your dental exam and usually takes only 5 to 10 minutes. During your initial visit, most patients will receive a full series of X-rays to comprehensively cover all necessary areas. Once the X-rays are completed, they are promptly uploaded, allowing you and Dr. Weller to review and discuss any areas of concern and treatment options as needed.
WHAT IS THE FOLLOW-UP?
Regular digital imaging is an essential part of your dental examination. For more comprehensive assessments, a full-mouth set may be taken, providing a more in-depth view of your teeth, gums, and jaw. Your digital images are securely stored with your oral health file at Weller Dental, enabling Dr. Weller to track trends and address emerging issues. A full series of digital images is typically taken every three years, with bitewing cavity-detecting X-rays updated every 12 months.
