Dental X-rays Overview

Dental X-rays OverviewExclusive dentists PROTECTING YOUR MOUTH.

During a dental care appointment, your dentist at some point in time may find it necessary to take x-rays of your mouth based upon the review of your medical and dental history, specific signs and symptoms, your age, and risk of oral disease.

Dental x-rays are crucial, precautionary diagnostic tools that provide valuable evidence not visible during a regular dental exam. Exhausting the most cutting-edge dental technology possible is just as important as staying current on the latest treatment techniques.

With Digital x-rays, your dental office uses an electronic sensor that captures and stores the digital image on a computer. This image can be instantaneously viewed and enlarged to help distinguish the issues inside your mouth quickly.


  • Abscesses or cysts
  • Bone loss
  • Cancerous and non-cancerous tumors
  • Decay between the teeth
  • Developmental abnormalities
  • Poor tooth and root positions
  • Problems inside a tooth or below the gum line


Expert dentists take necessary precautions to limit your exposure to radiation by taking simple precautions — including taking only the amount of x-rays that are necessary, and using lead apron shields to protect the body.

Digital x-rays produce a significantly lower level of radiation compared to traditional dental x-rays.  Not only are digital x-rays better for the health and safety of the patient, they are faster and more comfortable to take, which reduces your time in the dental office.
