Do I really need dental x-rays?

Dental x-rays are very important diagnostic tools, providing our dentist with underlying information that otherwise would be impossible to see. Such information may allow early detection of problems that can be prevented or intervened promptly to reduce the risks of future problems. Certain treatment requires dental x-rays in order to review the extent of the problems and to avoid complications during the procedure. There are various types of x-rays used in dentistry for different purposes to obtain information of the jawbone and joints, surrounding tissues of teeth, areas of decay and infection. It is important to discuss with our dentist should you have any concerns regarding dental x-rays.

At Be Well Dental, we use the latest digital technology to ensure that our dental x-rays deliver radiation at very low doses and is localised only to the area of the dental film.
