Dental X-Rays are one of the services provided by Dr. Delafraz and her team to find problems with your teeth and mouth, as well as the jaw.
Dental X-rays allow them to take a closer look at your teeth to find cavities and see how healthy the root of a tooth and the surrounding bone are. Dental X-rays can also help your dentist find impacted teeth and can be used to check the growth of the teeth and jaw.
You might need to have a set of X-rays taken for a few reasons.
They are the most common type of X-ray that dentists perform because they help with finding problems with the teeth and jaw. Some types of intraoral X-ray include bite-wing, periapical and occlusal X-rays.
An extraoral X-ray shows the outside of your jaw and head. They include several different types of X-ray used for different purposes.
Your dentist can look at not just your teeth but your jaw and your whole head and skull to find potential issues.
