X-rays

Revealing your Internal Oral Health

X-rays are used as part of our clinic’s examination protocol to help us identify oral health problems that are not visible to the naked eye, such as:

  1. Decay that has not yet reached the surface of the tooth
  2. An abscess at the root of your tooth
  3. Cysts and tumours
  4. Jaw bone diseases
  5. Absence of permanent teeth in a child
  6. Development of impacted wisdom teeth

Are X-rays Dangerous?

Our clinic utilizes new technologies in digital imaging that allow us to perform X-rays with much less radiation exposure than in the past. In addition, we will always cover you in a lead blanket to block X-rays from penetrating other parts of your body. Radiation from dental X-rays is as minimal as that received from sun exposure, appliances in your home, and while riding on a plane.

If you are worried about X-rays, call our office to learn more about our X-ray protocol.
