X-Rays are essential, preventative, diagnostic tools that provide valuable information not visible during a regular dental exam. Dentist and Dental Hygienists use this information to safely and accurately detect hidden dental abnormalities and complete an accurate treatment plan. Without x-rays, problem areas may go undetected. Detecting and treating dental problems at an early stage can save you time, money, and unnecessary discomfort, and your teeth!
