An Inside Look at the Excellence of X-Rays

Dental X-Rays

One of the primary reasons we go to the dentist is to detect dental problems before they turn into serious concerns. While a physical examination can find noticeable signs of issues, some oral diseases are just not visible to the naked eye. This is why dental X-rays are such an important part of dental care. Dental X-rays can detect even the slightest traces of oral health problems at their earliest stages, such as cavities, gum disease, oral infections, and some types of tumors. With early detection, you can get the treatment you need before problems have a chance to develop.

It’s important to realize that dental X-rays are only taken when necessary for diagnosis and treatment. Their frequency depends on the individual’s dental health, signs of dental problems, age, and risk for oral disease.

While some people worry about the radiation exposure from X-rays, there really is no need for concern. Modern technology has reduced radiation levels to miniscule amounts. For almost 25 years, the American Dental Association has published recommendations to help family dentistry practices make sure that radiation exposure is as low as effectively possible. In addition, dentists take numerous safety precautions like protective aprons and collars to protect patients from radiation. They also make any exposure as brief as possible by using digital X-rays or the fastest film speeds available.

The true value of dental X-rays lies in the way they discover dental problems before they have a chance to develop. If you don’t catch these issues early, even the latest technology and an affordable dentist can’t save you from the pain, time, and expense of treating them after they’ve worsened.

As you can see, dental X-rays show the big picture on your dental health and play a valuable role in good dental care.
