“What are X-Rays?”
Dental x-rays are diagnostic tools that provide crucial information not readily visible during a dental exam. Dentists use the information contained in x-rays to find hidden dental problems and make accurate treatment plans.
Dental x-rays can detect:
- Teeth decay
- Painful abscesses
- Cancerous and benign tumors
- Poor root positions
