What are the Benefits of a Dental X-Ray?

Have you been informed that your dentist will perform an x-ray of your teeth and gums in the near future? If so, there is nothing to worry about. This non-invasive procedure is completely painless and it can be used to diagnose a number of problems that might be tough to spot otherwise.

  • The presence of abscesses or tumours.
  • The bone density of your jaw.
  • Whether or not your teeth are properly aligned below the gum line.

“These are things your dentist can’t see with their eyes during a manual exam.”
