Dental radiographs (x-rays) show the structures of your teeth and mouth that cannot be seen visually during your clinical examination. We take x-rays every 2-3 years to check for any problems. Some areas of your teeth have thicker outer enamel surfaces making detection of decay, by looking in the mouth only, very difficult. X-rays also allow us to see the very early signs of decay which means we can monitor changes, start treatment early and prevent further damage.

From time to time there are other more specific reasons to take an x-ray, when there is an infection or to check on unerupted teeth in the jaws e.g. wisdom teeth. Dental x-rays require small radiation doses (even smaller now we have digital x-rays!) however, we never take them unnecessarily.
