Why do I need a dental x-ray?
While an in-person evaluation and examination of your teeth can go a long way in helping you achieve optimal dental health, it’s what’s beneath the surface that can cause long-term health issues. That’s where an x-ray comes in. Using x-rays, we can see inside your teeth and jawline to spot infections, tooth decay, and other issues that might cause you pain and discomfort.
If you stay up-to-date with regular exams it may not be necessary to conduct an x-ray with each visit.
