X-Rays/ Exams

Your daily oral hygiene routine consists of brushing your teeth twice a day, flossing after every meal, and swishing mouth rinse. Although daily oral hygiene has a part in preventing oral issues, x-rays and dental exams help your dentist identify if there are underlying issues such as cavities, gum disease, or oral cancer. X-rays and dental exams are recommended twice a year, every six months. Digital x-rays enable your dentist to see under the gums and to the roots of your teeth, which is typically unseen by the naked eye. X-rays can reveal bone loss, tooth decay, root issues, cysts, abscesses, and cancerous tumors. Your dentist will check your teeth, gums, tongue, neck, and throat for any signs of infection. If you have any fillings, bridges, or braces, your dentist will exam those for any chips or damages. Your bite alignment will also be checked
