X Rays as explained by the American Dental Association
What are the benefits of dental x-rays?
Dental x-rays will reveal not only issues with your teeth, but the surrounding tissue and bone as well. If your dentist went by a visual exam only, there may be serious oral infections and diseases that are unable to be diagnosed, which leads to poor oral health and possible tooth loss. With dental x-rays, we are able to determine the proper diagnosis and treatment for each patient so that he or she is able to maintain good oral health.
What issues will a dental x-ray reveal?
Dental x-rays allow your dentist to uncover issues such as:
- Bone loss
- Cavities not seen by visual exams
- Decay between teeth
- Issues below the gum line
These are a few of the problems addressed by an x-ray. Your doctor will recommend the proper dental treatment once an x-ray has uncovered an issue. By following his guidelines, it will help you on your way to better oral health.
Are dental x-rays safe?
With advancement in dental technology, our office is able to provide our patients with a safe environment, which includes x-rays. These state-of-the-art advancements help protect our patients against radiation. The radiation that is emitted from the x-ray is very minimal and not as high as various other forms of natural radiation. So, yes – dental x-rays at Advanced Dentistry South Florida are safe.
How often do I need dental x-rays?
Every patient is unique and the dental needs of each patient varies. A few variables for x-rays may include your age, past dental history and risk for disease. Your dentist will determine how many x-rays you may need during your treatment and will discuss this with you when you visit our office.
