Our dentistry services are designed to give you optimal outcomes for your oral health. During your dental service, we may need to take X-rays of your teeth. X-rays are also known as dental radiographs. X-rays are used to examine the inside of your teeth. We are hoping to catch any problems that we can’t see with the naked eye! Radiology can identify where cavities are developing on what teeth. Radiology may also allow us to see some teeth or gum areas that may require some extra work. We take all necessary precautions to make sure that your dental x-rays are an accurate and safe process.
Do Dental X-rays Show Tooth Infections?
If a tooth is infected, a dental X-ray can show the dentist that an infection has developed, sometimes before you can even feel the ache and pain. Other than tooth infections, X-rays also display tooth decay.
