We take or request X-rays for the following reasons:
1. Find Out If There Is Decay Between Teeth
Sometimes it is hard to see with the naked eye.
2. Check for Bone Loss
An x-ray presents noticeable jaw bone loss associated with gum disease.
3. Check for Decay Under Fillings
An x-ray will help us see the underlying problem with dental restorations.
4. Look for Infection at the Tip of the Root
An x-ray will guide us to confirm the presence or absence of infection.
5. Examine the Area Before Procedures
Gives the dentist a detailed view of teeth and bone, avoiding guesswork.
When we recommend that we need to take or request a Dental X-ray, we intend to better evaluate your dental status or problem. So, our dentist can implement a reliable treatment solution.
