The Dental x-ray is an essential, diagnostic tool that provides valuable information about your dental health. Dentists and dental hygienists use this information to safely and accurately detect and treat hidden dental irregularities.
Without x-rays, serious problems may go undetected.
Dental x-rays are used to expose any possible:
Decay between teeth
Problems inside a tooth, and/or below the gum line
Developmental abnormalities in children’s teeth
Poor tooth and root positions
Bone loss in the jaw due to gum disease
Serious infections such as abscesses or cysts
Cancerous and non-cancerous tumors
An x-ray is a preventative tool: Early discovery of dental problems not only can save you time and money, it can save your teeth!
