What Are Dental X-Rays?
Posted on 3/21/2022 by Dr. Michael Allard
Regular dental visits are one of the ways that you can ensure that you maintain your optimal dental wellness. At our clinic, our Oral and Maxillofacial surgeons can examine your dental health and determine if you require specialized treatment. One of the methods that our surgeons use is dental X-rays. These help to highlight and pinpoint the root cause of your dental problems. This in turn helps in personalizing your treatment plan. You will also receive information about dental X-rays if you have any queries.
Understanding Dental X-Rays
Dental X-rays sometimes called radiographs are images of your dental tissues that our experts use to determine the state of your oral health. The images can show the interior of your teeth and help detect cavities, impacted teeth, and decays. These images can also show the state of your gums, and our dentists can then start for personalized treatment care.
Factors That Can Influence Whether You Require a Dental X-Ray
Several reasons can prompt our dentist to perform a dental X-ray. A history of dental problems is usually one of the top reasons why you might have an X-ray performed. This will help the dentist to understand what might be ailing you. Our dentist can also recommend a dental x-ray if they suspect that you might be suffering from gingivitis (gum disease). Young people are also likely to get more dental X-rays than adults because our dentist would want to effectively monitor the growth and development of their teeth.
