X-rays are part of an oral examination because they help detect any problems not visible during an external examination. They can detect how deep a cavity penetrates, if the root of the tooth is infected and whether there is any bone loss. The valuable information they provide helps the dentist treat any unseen problems that maybe unseen by the naked eye. Our office is equipped with the latest digital x-ray equipment which takes less time to process the image and the patients are exposed to less radiation.
