Why Do You Need Dental X-Rays?Dental X-rays assist dentists in seeing disorders of the teeth and surrounding tissue that are not visible during a basic oral checkup. They also assist the dentist in detecting and treating tooth issues early on, which may save your time and money, undue suffering, and perhaps your life. So, because your teeth are so significant, you need to ensure that you and your family members are getting their exams done on schedule and at the right time for them.

How Frequently Should Teeth Be X-Rayed?

This is frequently determined by your medical and dental background, as well as your present state. Some individuals may require X-rays every five weeks, while others with no current dental or periodontal disease and who visit their dentist on a regular basis may only require X-rays every two years. If you are a new patient, our dentist may take X-rays as part of the first exam in order to generate a reference record against which to evaluate alterations that may take place over time. Remember your teeth are one of the most important things that you use on an hourly basis, for more information or to schedule your next appointment, call our office now.
