X-rays are a crucial diagnostic tool. Low-dose, digital technology makes them safer.
Why do Orthodontists and Dentists Need to Take Dental X-Rays?
Digital x-rays allow Dr. Matthew Durschlag and Dr. Kristy Hayes to see in between the teeth and below the gums and bone. This lets them visualize issues like cavities and structures, such as the tooth roots and unerupted permanent teeth, in areas that can’t be seen with the naked eye. Having this full picture is essential for developing an accurate diagnosis and a safe, effective treatment plan.
