Our Oakville dental office uses dental x-rays to aid us in examining your oral health.
Radiographic or X-ray examination is an essential tool used as part of an overall oral examination. X-rays provide important information about the structures of your mouth that cannot be seen with the naked eye, including; the inside of your teeth, their roots and the bone that surrounds them.
Hidden problems under fillings and crowns such as cavities or within the jawbone such as abscesses, cysts, tumors, bone diseases, periodontal (gum) disease or impacted teeth can be identified. This is important because often theses problems are undetected and painless. Catching them early can prevent them from growing larger, more difficult and costly to treat as well as prevent many from becoming painful.
We care for you beautiful smile – and what's underneath! If you have more questions or concerns about dental x-rays, contact our Oakville dentists and we will be happy to help you.
