X-rays provide your dentist with the bigger picture of your oral health. They help show the condition of your teeth, its roots, your jaw and facial structure. X-rays reveal any hidden decay under the gum and are essential in the planning and preparation for restorative dental care.
At Kelmscott Dental, our x-rays use very low doses of radiation. If you have concerns about x-ray exposure, please talk to your dentist about why an x-ray might be recommended and what alternative options may exist.
