When was your last oral check-up?
Through x-ray, a dentist can assess the health of your teeth by checking for decay, cracks in the roots, infections or loss of bone and monitor the progress of developing teeth. X-rays assist a dentist to ascertain existing problems which may have otherwise gone undetected.
Patients can be wary of exposure to radiation via x-ray. Greenvale Dental Group use digital x-ray equipment which provides up to 90% less exposure to radiation than traditional non-digital systems. The level of radiation from your dental x-rays will be less than being exposed to the sun.
In some cases, an OPG (panoramic or wide view x-ray) or a CBCT scan is required.
