What Type Of X-Ray Do You Use?

Intraoral X-rays are the most common type in dentistry. They give a high level of detail of the tooth, bone, and supporting tissues of the mouth. These X-rays allow dentists to:

  • Find cavities
  • Examine roots and the bony area around the tooth
  • Diagnose periodontal disease
  • Check on developing teeth

Digital X-Rays
