Dental hygiene is one of the most important aspects when it comes to good oral health. By taking proper care of your teeth, you can prevent certain complications and better preserve your overall health. Some problems, however, can occur even if you practice excellent oral hygiene. That’s why it’s always important to take a look under the surface with a dental x-ray.
Our team at The Dental Room offers in-depth dental check-ups, with the use of modern technology for a precise diagnosis. Our trained and experienced staff know the importance of looking under the surface to properly diagnose and treat a dental problem.
What Are The Benefits Of Dental X-Rays?
A dental x-ray helps Dr. Chattha see inside your teeth and gums, making it easier to identify and treat an illness. Radiographs have become a key diagnostic tool when conducting a complete dental exam. The main benefits of completing a dental exam and x-ray are:
To identify problems such as tartar, cavities, and decay.
Stop the threat of looming dental illnesses, which can eventually become gateways for diseases entering our bodies.
Check for underlying signs of cancer, which can help save a life when detected early.
Identify any systemic health issues that result from swelling lymph nodes and the neck area.
What Can Dental X-Rays Diagnose?
Visual dental examinations can be helpful, but dental x-rays play a major role in finalizing a diagnosis and treatment. At The Dental Room, we encourage taking a dental x-ray because it helps in detecting issues such as:
Specific areas that are decaying, which could not be visible with a casual oral examination.
Any significant bone loss, which often results in gum related diseases.
Developing decay underneath an existing filling.
Assists in other dental procedures such as tooth implants, braces, and dentures among other procedures.
