Do I really need dental x-rays?

Are you wondering if you really need dental x-rays? It’s a common question for many patients, as x-rays are an important part of preventive dental care.

Dental x-rays allow your dentist to check for potential problems that may not be visible during a routine dental exam. In addition to helping diagnose cavities and other dental issues, x-rays can help your dentist determine the best course of treatment.

At our dental office, we believe it’s important to keep up with regular dental x-rays. X-rays provide valuable information about the health of your teeth, gums, and jaws that can’t be seen with a visual inspection alone. For example, x-rays can reveal issues such as decay between the teeth or in the root of a tooth, or abscesses or cysts in the jawbone. They can also detect bone loss due to periodontal disease.

The frequency of dental x-rays depends on your specific dental health needs. Some patients may need x-rays more often than others. If you have a history of cavities or gum disease, your dentist may recommend more frequent x-rays. Additionally, your dentist may recommend x-rays to monitor the progress of treatments such as orthodontics.

At our office, we use digital x-ray technology, which is a safe and effective way to get diagnostic images. Digital x-rays produce images with less radiation than traditional film x-rays. Our digital x-ray machine also has a built-in sensor that automatically adjusts the amount of radiation needed for each image, so you can rest assured that your radiation exposure is kept as low as possible.  

Dental x-rays are an important part of preventive dental care, and can help keep your mouth healthy and your smile looking great.
