Dental X-rays

What are the benefits of a dental radiograph examination?

Many diseases of the teeth and surrounding tissues cannot be seen with the naked eye when your dentist examines your mouth. A dental x-ray examination may reveal:

– small areas of decay between the teeth or below existing fillings
– gum disease
– position of wisdom teeth and risk of surgery (proximity to nerve)
– temporomandibular joint disease
– unerupted or missing or abnormal permanent teeth
– some types of cysts, tumors or cancers

Finding and treating dental problems at an early stage can save time, money and unnecessary discomfort. Dental x-rays can detect damage to oral structures not visible during a regular exam. If you have a hidden tumor, a dental x-ray may even help save your life.

Is dental x-ray detrimental to my health?

No, in fact dental x-ray poses very little harm to an individual’s health. We are exposed to radiation in our everyday life from various sources, such as frequent airplane travel and high altitudes, soil minerals, and electrical appliances in our homes (computers and television screens).

It would take a series of 20 full-mouth dental radiographs to equal the amount of radiation the average citizen picks up from background sources each year.

Can pregnant ladies take dental X-ray?

Due to the low doses of radiation, dental X-ray is considered safe during pregnancy. It’s advisable to wear lead protection over the baby, particularly in the first trimester.

Please inform any of our staff if you are pregnant.
