Why X-Rays Are Performed
Dental X-rays are typically performed yearly or during your initial consultation visit. They are detailed images of your teeth that your dentist uses to evaluate your oral health. X-rays are taken with low levels of radiation and can help your dentist identify problems such as cavities, misalignment, tooth decay, or impacted teeth.
Children usually require more frequent X-rays than adults because this allows your dentist to track the development of their mouth and teeth. They can help determine if baby teeth need to be pulled to prevent complications, help predict future dental needs, and more.
Benefits of X-Rays
Many diseases and oral health complications can be spotted by your dentist. However, some conditions cannot be seen without the use of a closer, more scientific look. X-rays can reveal:
- Bone infections
- Periodontal disease
- Areas of decay between the teeth or below fillings
- Cysts or abscesses
- Developmental concerns
