Dental X-rays are an important tool used by dentists to diagnose and treat dental problems. They provide a detailed view of the teeth, gums, and surrounding structures, allowing dentists to detect problems that may not be visible to the naked eye. X-rays are also used to plan treatment, such as root canals, crowns, and other dental procedures.

X-rays are taken using a special machine that emits a small amount of radiation. This radiation passes through the teeth and gums and is captured on a special film. The film is then developed and examined by the dentist.

X-rays are typically taken at regular intervals, such as once a year or every six months, to monitor the health of the teeth and gums. They can also be taken if the dentist suspects a problem, such as a cavity or an infection.

When taking an X-ray, the patient is typically asked to bite down on a special film holder. This helps to ensure that the X-ray is taken in the correct position. The patient may also be asked to wear a lead apron to protect them from the radiation.

X-rays are a safe and effective way to diagnose and treat dental problems. They will normally be performed in conjuction with a Routine Examination.
