The exact rates of dental X-rays varies based on factors like your location and your dentist. If you live in a high-cost-of-living area, you can expect to pay a higher price for your X-rays. On the other hand, if you live in an inexpensive area, your X-rays probably won't cost as much.
The type of X-ray you need also affects the price. There are different types of dental X-rays, depending on the view your dentist needs. Bite-wing X-rays show your dentist the crowns of your back teeth, and one or two X-rays are taken for each side of the mouth. Sharecare explains that a single X-ray may cost between $15 to $25.
Bitewing X-rays will cost between $50 to $100. Panoramic X-rays give the dentist a broad view of your entire mouth. These X-rays can cost anywhere between $100 to $200.
To find out exactly how much your X-rays will cost, ask your dentist. Your dentist can give you a quote based on the type of X-rays, number of images needed, and other factors. Most dental insurance covers the cost of X-rays, so you may not have to pay much or anything out-of-pocket if you're insured. If you're not insured, ask your dentist about payment plans or other options.
