DENTAL X-RAYS IN RICHMOND HILL & THORNHILL


dental xrays richmond hill Why Do I Need Dental X-rays? Similar to an iceberg, only a portion of your tooth is visible upon the first inspection. Your tooth is composed of several layers, with a large portion hidden below your gum line and in your jaw bone.

The surface 'enamel' that we can visibly examine is meant to protect the inner parts of a tooth. Below your enamel is the Dentin, then the Pulp where the nerve and blood vessels nourish your tooth. Also hidden are your Jaw bone, joints and ligaments that help support your teeth. Damage, infection or abnormalities below the surface are often invisible however cannot be ignored.

Dental X-rays allow us to:
  • Find decay and abnormalities between teeth and below the gum line
  • Monitor the effects of periodontal conditions
  • Monitor your jaw bone and the position of your teeth
  • Monitor areas of concern before they become a problem
  • Detect any growths or abnormality in your jawbone that may be a sign something more serious
  • Get a complete picture of your teeth in relation to each other and your mouth (both inside and out)
Some people raised the question of radiation exposure, and its risks during the x-ray. The exposure from dental X-rays is quite low and is comparable to that of a long airplane flight. To reduce your exposure we cover you with specialized lead apron and take only an image of the area we need.

Dental x-rays are an integral part of caring for your oral health and smile. If you would like more information of how or why we use dental x-rays, please contact us.
