X-rays, also referred to as radiographs in dental terms, are diagnostic tools used to visualize structures inside the mouth that are not visible during a regular dental examination. X-rays can reveal issues such as cavities, bone loss, impacted teeth, and infections. They play a crucial role in helping dentists detect and diagnose dental problems early, allowing for timely treatment and prevention of further complications.

Useful Information

Dental x-rays provide high-resolution images that allow for the detection of small changes in tooth structure and the early diagnosis of dental issues. They are a safe and essential part of dental care, providing valuable information to ensure optimal oral health. Dental x-rays are used for diagnostic purposes, such as identifying cavities, examining tooth roots, assessing bone levels, and evaluating the health of the oral cavity. They are essential for treatment planning, including the assessment for braces, implants, and other dental procedures.

X-rays are also used in forensic dentistry to help with identification of individuals based on dental records, and in research for studying the structure and health of teeth on a larger population scale.

X-rays can penetrate different materials in the body to varying degrees, which is why they are effective for imaging the dense structures like bones and teeth. Dental X-rays emit low levels of radiation and are considered safe when appropriate protective measures, such as lead aprons and thyroid collars, are used.
