Dental X-Rays are essential, diagnostic tools that provide information not visible during a dental exam. Dentists and dental hygienists use this information to safely and accurately detect hidden problems and complete an accurate treatment plan. Without x-rays, problem areas may go undetected. Dental X-Rays reveal abscesses, cysts, bone loss, any abnormalities in TMJ problems, tooth decay, teeth developmental abnormalities, poor tooth and root positions, and problems inside a tooth or below the gum line.
