Our clinic has very modern dental radiology equipment, specifically designed for dental x-rays.
Dental radiographs allow us to see the area beneath the gum line where up to 75% of the tooth structure lies. By taking full mouth radiographs, we can find abnormalities such as:
- Periodontal disease
- Tooth resorptions
- Impacted teeth
- Retained root fragments
- Dead teeth
- Broken tooth roots and
- Abscessed teeth.
Most of these problems cannot be seen without an x-ray.
Therefore, by taking dental radiographs we can reduce further dentals required by treating those issues that would be missed (and arise later) if dental radiographs were not taken.
