Dental X-ray and Comprehensive Examination

Dental Xray

X-rays, or radiographs, are necessary for any dental care treatment plan. They are diagnostic, but they can also be preventative, by helping a dentist diagnose potential oral care issues in a patient’s mouth before they become a major problem.

An X-ray is a kind of energy that passes through soft tissues and is absorbed by dense tissue. Teeth and bone are very dense, so they absorb X-rays, whereas gums and cheeks enable X-rays to pass more easily through them.

 

When are X-Rays Necessary?

Periodically, your dentist may ask you to have an X-ray examination. X-ray examinations are a necessary part of complete, comprehensive patient care.

An X-ray examination may reveal:

 

Procedure

FAQs

Q – Why do I need to take X-Rays?

In order for the dentists to provide you with the highest level of care, we require patients to take mouth X-Rays. Extra shots which focus on areas of concern may be necessary, depending on the dentist’s discretion.

 

Q – Are X-Rays Safe?

Most people are most concerned with the radiation exposure from taking X-rays. However, X-rays have a low level of radiation and are considered safe. Additionally, precautionary measures are taken to minimize exposure. Before any X-rays are taken, a lead apron with a thyroid collar is placed on the patient.

At dePacific we use digital X-rays with minimum exposure.

 

What to Expect after Treatment

When the images are ready — instantly in the case of digital X-rays — your dentist will review them and check for abnormalities. If a dental hygienist is checking your teeth, the dentist may go over the results of the X-rays with you once this is done. The exception is if the hygienist discovers any significant problems during the X-rays.

If your dentist finds problems, such as cavities or tooth decay, they’ll discuss your treatment options. If not, that’s great!
