- Many oral diseases can't be detected on the basis of a visual and tactile examination alone. Dental X-ray exams are valuable in providing information about your oral health such as early stage cavities, gum diseases, abscesses or some types of tumors. X-rays can help dentists catch and treat oral health problems at an early stage.
- How often dental X-rays should be taken depends on your oral health condition, your age, your risk for disease and any signs and symptoms of oral disease you may be experiencing. Let's talk about what is right for you.
- The American Dental Association has information about dental X-rays on its Web site at www.ADA.org if you would like more information.
Our office uses a Digital X-ray System, lead aprons, and thyroid collars to minimize your radiation exposure during all x-ray examinations.
