More commonly known as dental x-rays, dental radiographs provide a clearer picture of what’s going on with your teeth and jaw. Dental radiographs are a form of energy that has the ability to travel through your bones and teeth. This produces an image that allows our dental professionals to have a better idea of what is happening in the mouth. Even the most thorough visual exams may miss problems like cavities between the teeth.
At Spring Green Family dental, we do not use traditional film x-rays. Prioritizing our patient experience, we use digital radiography machines designed to produce as little radiation as possible while maintaining accuracy. While radiation may be minimal, the impact dental x-rays can have on a person’s oral and dental health is tremendous.
Dental radiographs can help monitor:
- Tooth decay
- Bone loss
- Root canal infections
- Teeth movement
- Wisdom teeth development
- Temporomandibular joint dysfunction (TMJ)
- Oral Cancer
- And much more
Dental x-rays are vital when looking to detect dental problems early on. The sooner one of our dental professionals can identify a potential problem, the quicker treatment can be recommended and started. If we diagnose and treat problems in their onset, it can lead to mitigating discomfort, saving money, and avoiding more health complications.
