Dental X-rays help dentists visualize diseases of the teeth and surrounding tissue that cannot be seen with a simple oral exam. They also help the dentist find and treat dental problems early on, which can help save you money, unnecessary discomfort, and maybe even your life.
Early detection of dental problems through X-rays can help prevent the need for more invasive and costly dental treatments later on. For example, detecting a small cavity on an X-ray can allow for prompt treatment with a simple filling rather than waiting until the cavity has progressed and requires more extensive treatment, like a root canal.
Furthermore, dental X-rays are safe and emit very low levels of radiation. With modern digital X-ray technology, radiation exposure is minimal, and dentists can capture high-quality images in a matter of seconds.
Therefore, following your dentist’s recommendations for dental X-rays and regular dental check-ups is important to maintain good oral health and catch any potential problems early on.
