Dental X-rays

Dental X-rays are a valuable tool we use to identify potential conditions that could threaten your wonderful smile. X-rays are instrumental in the detection of abnormalities below the tooth surface and between the teeth. Tooth decay, signs of gum disease, early detection of hairline fractures of the jaw or teeth, unhealthy roots, diminishing bone density, and the presence of tumors and cysts, are examples of dental X-ray findings that give beneficial information to make accurate diagnoses and help determine proper treatment.
Everyone's oral health varies, so we will evaluate your needs and recommend which type of X-rays you may need during your dental visit. During an initial visit, we may advise taking a full series of X-rays or panoramic image to assess your current oral health status.
There have been some amazing advancements in technology that make x-rays even safer and easier than ever. We use digital X-rays, which reduce radiation exposure.
X-rays are the absolute best way to determine if there is any damage to your mouth that is unseen from the surface. This diagnostic tool can be used to detect problems as early as possible, minimizing the treatment that would be needed.
