The benefits of dental x-rays include the early detection of oral health problems, such as cavities, gum disease, and tooth decay. Dental x-rays also help your dentist plan for dental procedures, such as root canals and crowns. By detecting problems early on, you can avoid more costly and invasive treatments down the road.

    Radiographs (X-Rays)

    X-rays are essential in detecting many dental problems that cannot be seen with the naked eye. They are used to detect decay in between teeth, under existing fillings or under the gum line. X-rays are also an important part of root canal therapy, and in the treatment of orthodontic problems and wisdom tooth removal.

    There are several types of radiographs that we use. A bitewing x-ray is a small x-ray which shows both upper and lower teeth. It can detect decay between the teeth or under fillings. They are used at the back of the mouth to show the back teeth.

    X-rays are essential in detecting many dental problems that cannot be seen with the naked.

    A periapical x-ray is often used by the dentist to show a particular tooth, or surrounding tissues. This type of x-ray shows finer detail.

    A panoraramic x-ray or OPG is used to show all of your teeth and jaw. It shows the development of teeth and their position. This type of x-ray is a useful to the dentist for tooth removal, including wisdom teeth and for orthodontic treatment.

    From the moment my nervous little self entered after many years of no dental work due to trauma. I felt calm and in control of this situation. Josh was nothing but understanding and caring of my needs and concerns. Once my comprehensive exam was complete i was then blessed with an amazing hygienist Trish who was also very caring and understanding of my anxiety and talked me through every step she took, the way they both interacted with myself was truly an amazing experience.
