Dental X-rays (radiographs) are images of your teeth that your dentist uses to evaluate your oral health. These X-rays are used with low levels of radiation to capture images of the interior of your teeth and gums. This can help your dentist to identify problems, like cavities, tooth decay, and impacted teeth.

Dental X-rays may seem complex, but they’re actually very common tools that are just as important as your teeth cleanings.

  • On your first visit, you will have an FMX (full mouth x-rays) taken so the Doctor can see the whole mouth
  • Every six months, you will have four bitewings taken
  • X-rays help the Dentist diagnose accurately and allow them to see things that they may not be able to see with the naked eye
