What Are Dental X-Rays?
Dental X-rays, also known as radiographs, are an essential part of any dental care treatment plan. They can spot trouble early in your mouth, teeth, gums and jaw. This allows you to treat problems before they get serious so you can save money, pain and sometimes even your life!
As your local Chesapeake dentist, we use dental x-rays as a diagnostic tool to help our team detect damage and disease that is not visible during a regular dental exam. If you are a new patient, our team will recommend dental x-rays to determine the present status of your oral health and have a baseline to help identify changes that may occur later.
