Dental X-rays are important for many reasons:

  • They can expose hidden tooth decay
  • Reveal a tooth abscess, cyst or tumour
  • Show impacted or extra teeth;
  • They help determine the condition of dental fillings, tooth crowns, dental bridges and root canals.
  • They reveal bone loss from periodontal gum disease,
  • They help us evaluate if there is enough bone for the placement of dental implants
