Why do I need x-rays?

Dental X-rays detect problems or damage to your teeth and gums that are not visible to the naked eye, including:

  • The condition of your teeth and rootsDental x-ray
  • Jaw placement and structure of facial bones
  • Small cavities hiding between teeth or below fillings and crowns
  • Periodontal (gum) disease
  • Infections in the bone
  • Abscesses or cysts
  • Developmental abnormalities
  • Some types of tumors
  • The exact location of impacted teeth and teeth not yet fully developed

The advantage to you is that x-rays allow dental problems to be found and treated at an early stage, saving you time, money and unnecessary pain. Call Yahara Dental to schedule your preventative exam.
