Dental X-Rays: Safe and Vital!

Dentist Looking at Dental X Rays Dunwoody GA

Getting x-rays taken at the dental office is, admittedly, not much fun. You might be tempted to pass on x-rays at your next dental checkup in Dunwoody, but there are a few good reasons why you shouldn’t.

Dental X-Rays Detect Early Dental Problems

X-rays pick up on problems that are not visible to a dentist’s eye. Some of the many dangerous conditions a dental x-ray can reveal include:

  • Oral cancer
  • Cavities
  • Bone loss or thinning
  • Tooth root resorption
  • Abscesses

Dental X-Rays Make Your Treatment Safer

How would you feel if a dentist started to work on your teeth…blindfolded?

Understandably, you’d be terrified! Interestingly, that’s exactly what would happen if you refused x-rays before treatment like a crown, filling, or root canal. Your teeth aren’t invisible; the dentist can’t see through them! X-rays are absolutely essential to mapping out the treatment plan before the work starts.

Dental X-Rays Are Safe

You aren’t exposed to much radiation, at all, when your teeth are x-rayed. You’ll be wearing a protective lead apron that ensures that any minimal scatter radiation is blocked from your body’s vital organs. Here at our Dunwoody dental office, we make sure that you don’t get any more x-rays than are absolutely necessary for your treatment.
