What is a Dental X-ray?
Dental x-rays are essential, preventative, diagnostic tools that provide valuable information not visible during a dental exam. Dentists and hygienists use this information to safely and accurately detect hidden dental abnormalities and complete an accurate treatment plan. Detecting and treating dental problems at an early stage saves you time, discomfort, and your teeth!
How often should dental x-rays be taken?
A full mouth series of dental x-rays is recommended for new patients. A full series is usually good for three to five years. Bite-wing x-rays are taken at check-up visits and are recommended once or twice a year to detect new dental problems.
The need for dental x-rays depends on each patient’s individual dental health needs. Your dentist and hygienist will recommend x-rays based upon the review of your medical and dental history, a dental exam, signs and symptoms, your age, and risk of disease.
