Dental x-rays are essential to our practice because they help us find problems that might be hidden beneath the surface of the teeth. Problems that may occur under the gum line or in the jaw will be completely hidden from the naked eye, but x-rays will make them very apparent to us. With their help, your doctor can catch problems early and treat them quickly and conservatively. Usually, a full series of x-rays will be taken at one of your semiannual checkups. Your doctor will always go over them with you and explain everything they see so you can stay well informed about your dental health.
