Radiographs (x-rays) help a dentist to see between the teeth and beneath the gums. This helps us to diagnose dental problems that cannot yet be seen in the mouth. Often, this allows us to treat the issues before they cause the patient discomfort.
A Note about Radiation from Dental Treatments
At our office, we are serious about protecting both you and your family. We have invested in radiographic technology that has radiation exposure rates of less than 1% of allowed occupational dosage.
