Dental X-Rays in Ashton, MD
Dental x-rays detect much more than cavities. They may be taken to survey erupting teeth, diagnose bone disease, evaluate the results of an injury, or plan orthodontic treatment. X-rays allow our dental team to diagnose and treat conditions that cannot be detected during a general oral health exam.
X-rays are recommended only when necessary to evaluate and monitor your oral health. The frequency of x-rays is prescribed by your dentist and based on your individual needs.
How Safe are Dental X-Rays?
Our dentists are extremely careful to minimize the radiation exposure of our patients. With contemporary safeguards, like lead aprons, high-speed film, digital x-rays, and thyroid collars, the amount of radiation received in a dental x-ray is very low. Dental x-rays represent a far smaller risk to you than undetected and untreated dental problems.
