Why Do You Need Dental X-Rays?

Posted on 10/10/2022 by Janice K. Pliszczak, DDS
Why Do You Need Dental X-Rays?X-rays, often known as radiographs, give your dentist a close-up view of the conditions inside your mouth. Our dentists understand that a visual examination alone is insufficient to give patients the finest care possible. Our dental specialists may help prevent dental issues using x-rays.

What are Dental X-rays Used For?

In an x-ray, our dentist may view everything from the tip of the roots to the bones under your gums, in addition to the visible portion of the tooth. These x-rays help your dentist identify any isolated or unique symptoms you might be experiencing. An x-ray can be used by our dentists to check for a variety of conditions. Along with missing or impacted teeth, our dentists are able to count the number of wisdom teeth that are present, providing you with quicker, more effective care.

How Does a Dental X-ray Work?

X-rays are routinely taken during a routine dental appointment. These x-rays, which typically include bitewing x-rays, can provide our dentist with additional information on the crown areas of your teeth and allow them to look for decay. With a bite plate in between your teeth and an x-ray machine positioned on either side of your face, these radiographs are taken.

How Often Should I Get an X-ray?

The basic minimum you should obtain an x-ray is at your yearly dentist appointment and cleaning, though this may vary depending on the individual. Due to the unexpected and delicate state of children's teeth, more X-rays are frequently needed than for adults. To make sure their oral health is at its best and establish a baseline for future visits to our clinics, new patients generally need more x-rays than usual. For more information on dental x-rays call us today to schedule an appointment with our dentists.
