You may be tired of sitting still for X-rays when you go into your dentist or orthodontist’s office. “Why are they doing this? Why do they need to keep taking X-rays?” you might ask yourself. In this blog, Dr. Harrison’s team at Parkcrest Dental Group provides you with information about why X-rays are not only an essential part of modern dentistry but why they assist your dental treatment progress.
X-rays Help Dental Professionals
X-rays allow your dentist or orthodontist to check the insides of your teeth, the root, and bone that is part of your gums and also help them to understand why you might be experiencing dental pain. X-rays allow your care professional to access issues that are normally hidden from their view. X-rays can help your dental professional to diagnose dental diseases, treat cysts and abscesses, and even identify and determine the severity of masses.
X-rays Help You Heal
By ensuring that your mouth is completely evaluated, your orthodontist or dentist can ensure that they are providing you with the treatment that you need! It also allows them to monitor your dental treatment progress, and see where they need to focus or refocus their efforts. X-rays are a wonderful diagnostic tool that ensures that intensive treatments are working thoroughly. It helps your dental professional to determine if the treatments are working simply surface level, or if deeper issues are addressed.
