X-rays are sometimes referred to as radiographs. They are often used to detect cavities, damage or other problems with your teeth. They are also useful for locating wisdom teeth that have not yet erupted and in checking the jaw for bone deterioration. X-rays are also very useful in preparing a patient for dental implants or other procedures. X-rays are also valuable for checking on the eruption of adult teeth in a child and in tracking any changes in your teeth and mouth over the years.
Although X-rays technology does involve radiation, the amount of radiation is very low and well within safety standards. If you are pregnant or have questions about the radiation used in the process, feel free to talk to one of our team members before your appointment. We can provide aprons and collars to minimize your exposure.
