Through x-ray, a dentist can assess the health of your teeth by checking for general signs of dental 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.
