Dental X-Rays

What are Dental X-Rays?

A dental x-ray is a diagnostic tool that allows us to see just below the surface of your teeth and gums. When a simple examination isn’t enough, we will often recommend x-rays. These x-rays use a minimal amount of radiation and are safely taken in our office. They are suitable for patients of all ages because of the benefits that come from having them done.

Why are Dental X-Rays needed?

You may need to have x-rays taken before a particular procedure, like an oral surgery. Likewise, you may need to have these x-rays taken at each of your checkup appointments as a way for us to monitor and check for changes in your oral health. You can expect to have x-rays taken at the majority of your visits in our office. We take x-rays on an as-needed basis to create a treatment plan that is specific to your needs.

What Can Dental X Rays Detect

What can Dental X-Rays detect?

X-rays allow us to see below the surface and find things that wouldn’t be found with a typical examination. They are useful for a variety of different treatment needs. Some things that an x-ray can help us to find include:

  • Decay
  • Bone and gum tissue loss
  • Restoration problems
  • Infections and abscesses
  • Impacted teeth
  • Pediatric tooth development

What happens when Dental X-Rays are taken?

To begin the process of taking x-rays, our trained staff members will place a lead apron over your body. This is to protect you from the radiation being used to create the image. A tiny device is placed inside the mouth and the x-ray machine itself is angled at this device. The x-ray is taken and the image immediately transposes to our computer screens. We then repeat this process until all of the x-rays have been taken that are needed. You should come in regularly to have x-rays taken so that we can carefully monitor for any changes or problems to your oral health.

If you think you might need or want x-rays, we can get you in for a quick and convenient appointment.
