Dental x-rays are essential diagnostic tools that provide valuable information during regular dental examinations. Dentists use this information to accurately and safely detect dental anomalies hidden in your mouth in order to establish a precise and personalized treatment plan for you.
Some problems that dental x-rays can help identify:
Detecting and treating dental problems at an early stage can save you time, money and unnecessary discomfort!
The amount of radiation exposure from a complete series of dental radiographs is equal to the amount a person receives in a single day from natural sources. Dental x-rays produce low levels of radiation and are considered safe. Rest assured, the team at Monk Dental will take the necessary precautions to limit your exposure with lead screens to protect your body.
This depends on every patient and their dental health. Your dentist will recommend x-rays based on your medical and dental history, dental exam , signs and symptoms, age and your risk of developing certain diseases.
A full set of dental radiographs is recommended for new patients and will generally be good for a period of three to five years while X-rays of the upper and lower teeth are recommended once or twice a year to detect new dental problems.
Dental x-rays are an invaluable aid in the detection, treatment, and maintenance of good dental health because they can help recover valuable diagnostic information. Your Montreal dentist will carefully choose what kind of x-rays and when they should be taken to help you keep your smile bright and your mouth in perfect health for many years to come.
