Dr. Schulman is amazing. I had an issue with my teeth, the dentist I had been using couldn't figure it out and Dr. Schulman resolved it. I have been using him now for years and am very happy with the excellent care.

What to Expect When Getting a Digital X-ray
A member of our dental care team will carefully insert a sensor into your mouth that is used in capturing images of your teeth and jaw through digital radiography.
The digital images are transmitted to a computer. This imaging can be viewed instantaneously in the treatment room.
Our dentist and other personnel can immediately assess the imaging, and then use it to inform you of the state of your oral health.
How Digital Imaging Benefits Our Patients and Their Long-Term Health
X-rays have long been effective in helping dental professionals detect diseases and other issues not visible to the naked eye. Digital radiography provides even higher quality images and more precise diagnostics. Digital X-rays let us effectively diagnose any complications that may be lurking under the surface. They also make it easier for us to explain your needs and help you make informed choices about your care.
From fillings to dental implants, having an in-depth understanding of the health of your jawbone, gums, and teeth is paramount. In essence, your dental treatment all starts with your dentist getting an accurate picture of what exactly your mouth — and your body — need. Digital radiography allows for the accurate planning of restorative and cosmetic treatments for maximum long-term benefits.
Educated patients are better equipped to make decisions about their care and maintain outstanding oral health between checkups. Now that these X-ray images are digital, it's easy to zoom in, explain the structures of the oral cavity and how they work together, and illustrate any oral health issues to the patient. Our practice values patient education, and we are excited to have the opportunity to use this tool to help you gain a better understanding of your oral health.
Exploring the Cost of Digital X-rays What You Should Know
When it comes to getting cutting-edge dental care, we understand that our patients will wonder how much it will cost. Fortunately, most dental insurances cover at least a portion of the cost of digital X-rays. We accept most insurances, including Careington, MetLife, UnitedHealthcare, and Aetna.
For those without insurance or individuals who need help budgeting for out-of-pocket expenses, our NJ practice accepts financing through CareCredit®. This third-party lender lets you manage out-of-pocket expenses by splitting payments up into monthly installments with little or no interest, based on your credit score.
