Dental radiographs (X-rays) are a diagnostic tool that provides valuable information about areas in your mouth that are not visible to the eye during a regular dental exam. Your dentist and dental hygienist use this information to safely and accurately detect hidden abnormalities in your mouth. Without X-rays, information about your oral health is incomplete and problem areas may go unnoticed. To schedule your appointment at New Hampshire Center for Comprehensive Dentistry and learn more about dental X-rays in Amherst, New Hampshire, please call us today at 603-672-6546.
Detecting and treating dental problems at an early stage can save you time, money, unnecessary discomfort, and your teeth! Dental X-rays are often used to detect problems such as:
- Abscesses or cysts
- Bone loss
- Cancerous and non-cancerous tumors
- Decay between the teeth
- Developmental abnormalities
- Poor tooth and root positions
- Problems inside a tooth or below the gum line
Dental X-rays produce a low level of radiation and are considered safe. At New Hampshire Center for Comprehensive Dentistry, we take additional precautions for your safety, including using lead apron shields, and also make use of digital X-rays to further enhance your safety and comfort, and to provide increasing more accurate diagnoses.
