X-Rays are very important! Without regular X-rays, your cavities and other problems may go unnoticed until it’s too late. X-rays help us detect decay, periodontal disease, fractures, infections, cysts, even cancer. That’s why it’s so important to get an early diagnosis. Today’s X-rays use minimal radiation and give us the immediate information we need to protect your smile. If you have questions or concerns about X-rays, just ask.
By using digital X-rays, we are able to immediately diagnosis problems you may have, show them to you on a computer screen, and explain what is happening and why. We always want you to take an active role in your oral health, and being able to show you large, clear, digital pictures of your teeth makes it easy to educate you and treat your problems. X-rays are the single most important diagnostic tool dentists have to help combat the variety of oral pathologies people can develop.
