Dental X-rays

 

Dental x-rays not only detect the early stages of decay that occur between teeth, but also help diagnose gum disease and abscessed teeth that aren’t painful yet.  Depending on the type of x-ray, they can also help detect benign or other changes in the teeth or surrounding tissues. 

Many times without x-rays early problems cannot be detected until they are larger, and more difficult and expensive to fix.  Routine x-rays can help prevent needless tooth loss.
