What are Dental X-Rays?
Dental X-Rays (or radiographs) are small images that help us see deep inside the bone or tooth to detect potential issues before they hurt or can be seen just by looking in your mouth.
Why would I want a Radiograph?
Dental radiographs provide a wealth of information that we would never be able to see otherwise.
Cavities, small infections, pathology (oral cancer), and a host of other problems cannot be seen with our eyes alone. Dental radiographs are vital to collection all the possible information about your mouth before proceeding with any treatments.
How does it work?
A radiograph uses a small digital plate to gather information about the area and transfers that data to a computer, allowing us to see things that our eyes cannot.
