Uses of Dental X-Rays

Dental X-rays are an important aid in identifying underlying problems with teeth and gums. The low level of radiation generated produces a picture of the inside of teeth, gums, and bone which can be interpreted by the dentist.

Most commonly, X-rays are used when certain dental conditions are suspected but need confirmation. The most common conditions include:

–  Cavities

–  Tooth decay

–  Impacted teeth

Dental X-rays are also useful when a dentist “is tracking the progress of a dental problem or treatment” or checking the jawbone for any irregularities. X-rays are an important part of good oral health for children and adults — but are not safe for pregnant women.
