Are x-rays used at check-ups?
Where appropriate, we carry out x-rays to help evaluate our patients’ dental health. X-rays show problems such as dental caries (or decay) between teeth or underneath fillings, which are not always visible to the naked eye. We also always take patient x-rays prior to carrying out dental treatments such as crowns and bridges.
At Riverside Dental Practice, we have a modern digital x-ray system that provides high-quality x-ray images at a reduced level of radiation. The images appear of the computer screen in a matter of seconds, and can be viewed by both dentists and patients.
