The Need for Regular
At Chelsea Dental Group, we have X-ray equipment in our office that allows us to view detailed pictures of your teeth, bones and the surrounding soft tissues. When our dentists look beneath the surface, we can catch problems that cannot be seen with the naked eye. X-rays allow us to find cavities, impacted wisdom teeth, bone loss and more that would not otherwise have been found.
When to Receive
The regularity of your X-rays depends heavily on your overall health, age, risk for disease and signs or symptoms of existing conditions. Children might require more frequent imaging than adults since their bones are still changing and developing. Our dentists will review your history with you, assess your oral health and determine how often you need X-rays.
