Why do I need a dental x-ray?
Dental x-rays provide us with a crucial diagnostic tool because it enables Dr Robert Ayar to see issues that are invisible to the naked eye. In fact, without the highly detailed images, we wouldn’t be able to provide you with the highest standard of dental care you deserve.
Digital radiographs are used to check for cavities in their earliest stages. We can also use x-rays to see the tooth roots and the gums, so we can detect any signs of infection or gum disease before you experience any pain or discomfort.
Patients who are concerned about the safety of dental x-rays should know that digital radiographs emit much less radiation than the traditional film x-rays that we used to use. We also use a leaded apron to further ensure patient safety during the process.
For most patients, we recommend a set of x-rays once every year, but depending on your needs and current oral health, Dr Ayar may advise more or less frequent x-rays.
Has it been longer than six months since your last dental examination and clean? It’s easy to schedule a booking, and we warmly welcome new patients. We look forward to seeing you.
