Top 8 Reasons Why You Need Dental X-Rays
Why we actually need to take Dental X-Rays?
Look for decay between teeth. Sometimes it’s not visible to the naked eye.
Check for bone loss. Dental X-ray will show the degree of bone loss associated with bone loss.
Check for decay under fillings. Dental X-ray is the only way to see this type of decay.
Look for infection at the tip of the root. If you have an infection in the bone, dental X-ray can confirm this.
Examining the area before the procedures gives dentists a full view of teeth and bone.
Check for possibility for dental implants. This gives dentists general idea of bone length and thickness.
Evaluation of impacted or supernumerary teeth.
Check for anatomical variations and restrictions.
As you can see, dental X-rays show the big picture on your dental health and play a valuable role in good dental care.
