Radiographs/ X-Rays

Intraoral X-rays are the most common type of radiograph taken in dentistry. These X-rays allow us to:

  • Find cavities
  • Look at the tooth roots
  • Check the health of the bony area around the tooth
  • Determine if periodontal disease is an oral care issue
  • See the status of developing teeth
  • Otherwise, monitor good tooth health through prevention
