What are Dental X-Rays?
Dental x-rays are an important part of your treatment and care. X-rays are useful before and during certain procedures, and they help us to identify changes and problems before they’re allowed to get worse. X-rays use a small amount of radiation, so they are safe and effective for patients of all ages. You will have x-rays taken at most of your dental appointments.
Why are Dental X-Rays needed?
Dental x-rays are needed because they help us identify problems below the surface, that would go unnoticed with a typical examination. X-rays may show abscesses, impacted teeth, and even hard-to-spot decay that can be treated as soon as it is found. X-rays are necessary at most of your dental appointments, since they are such an integral part of your care. They can be thought of as a preventative measure, as they are useful in spotting problems early on.
