Digital X-rays &
X-rays help us identify tooth decay in areas that are not visible. X-rays also allow us to look for Receding bone level (a sign of periodontal disease), supernumerary (extra teeth), missing impacted or un-erupted teeth, jaw bone cancer or bone cysts. X-rays also help identify early signs of bone loss, root fragments, root configuration and calcifications, sinus evaluation, abscesses of the teeth or gums, foreign objects, hairline fractures or cracks, tartar below the gum line, tooth position, filling overhangs or open margins, etc. Dental X-rays have very minimal radiation exposure.
On the other hand, if you are pregnant, embryonic tissues are sensitive to x-rays. You should inform the dentist if you think you are pregnant or if you are in the first trimester of your pregnancy. If you have any questions or concerns about our dental x-rays, please feel free to contact us.
