What are Dental X-rays?
A dental x-ray is a diagnostic tool that helps us to see below the surface of your teeth and gums. X-ray technology in the dental office uses a small amount of radiation to help create these high-definition images. The x-ray itself allows us to find hard-to-spot decay, abscesses, infections, breaks, cracks and other issues that would otherwise go unnoticed with a regular examination. X-rays are a critical part of both your preventative and corrective care in our office.
