Dental x-rays are an essential preventive and diagnostic tool that allow dentists to have a more comprehensive knowledge of your oral health. X-rays permit dentists and dental hygienists to safely and accurately detect any hidden problems or abnormalities that would not be visible during a regular dental exam. As with any health issue, early detection and treatment is most beneficial. Treating a small issue before it becomes a big problem can save you time, money and unnecessary discomfort.
With the use of an x-ray your dentist or dental hygienist can detect the following issues that are invisible to the naked eye:
- Abscesses or cysts
- Bone loss
- Tumours (both cancerous and non-cancerous)
- Decay between teeth
- Developmental abnormalities
- Problems inside or below the tooth or gums
- Poor root position
