Digital X Rays

Dental X-rays are an important part of a thorough dental examination. A full set of X-rays are usually required for new patients or patients that need extensive treatment. Two to four follow-up or check-up X-rays are necessary every 6-18 months, depending on your needs. Dental X-rays are needed because they expose hidden dental decay; reveal dental abscess, cyst or tumor; show impacted or extra teeth; and also help determine the condition of fillings, crowns, bridges and root canals. Dental X-rays can also reveal bone loss from gum disease, locate tartar buildup, find foreign bodies within the gum or bone, and see if there is enough bone for the placement of dental implants. These are just some of the many reasons why we rely on dental X-rays.
