Dental radiographs (x-rays) are a useful diagnostic tool which helps to detect oral conditions not visible during a regular dental exam. Dentists and dental hygienists use x-rays to accurately detect hidden dental abnormalities which allow them to determine an appropriate treatment plan.
Dental x-rays aid in the detection of:
- Decay between the teeth
- Developmental abnormalities
- Bone loss
- Abscesses or cysts
- Cancerous and non-cancerous tumors
- Poor tooth and root positions
Early detection of dental problems can save you time, money, unnecessary discomfort, as well as save your teeth!
