THE IMPORTANCE OF DENTAL X-RAYS
Dental x-rays are a vital component of the dentist’s diagnosis and treatment decisions. With dental x-rays, the dentist can tell whether there is an infection, if bone loss is occurring, and other issues. Without the use of dental x-rays, the dentist would be confined to whatever information the he/she can gather from a visual inspection of the mouth.
