Why Do Dentists Use X-rays?
X-rays have been used for many decades and certainly have their place in dentistry. They have saved many patients from suffering unnecessarily by being able to identify problems in your teeth and jaw before they become issues that need surgical attention. X-rays can reveal cavities, hidden impacts, holes, bone loss, and dental structures that have not yet come through the gums (like wisdom teeth). They can also expose cysts, abscesses, growths, tooth decay, and broken roots. In other words, a dentist’s gathered information on how to help you would be severely limited without x-rays! Once an x-ray is taken, we can use it to establish a plan to attack the problems in a mouth.
