Dental X-Rays

At Fox Valley Dental, we provide our clients with the best Dental radiographs (X-ray) services. X-rays are very vital for prevention as well as diagnosis element because they provide us with extremely important information that cannot be easily seen during a normal dental exam.

The Dentist in Aurora uses this information to accurately and safely find out dental abnormalities that are hidden from the naked eye and assist in the making up of a proper treatment plan.

Dental X-Rays are important because they reveal the following;

  • Decay that is in between the teeth.
  • Teeth that are poorly positioned.
  • Loss of Bone.
  • Abscesses or Cysts.
  • Abnormalities that have resulted from teeth development.
  • Cancerous as well as non-cancerous tumors.
  • Issues inside the tooth or below the gum line.

Early detection of dental issues as well as their resultant treatment can be very useful in the long run. You will be able to save your teeth, money, and discomfort that comes with it.

Are Dental X-rays Secure?

We are usually exposed to natural radiation that is found in the environment. The level of radiation exposure from a full mouth series of X-rays is the same as the amount an individual gets in a day from the natural sources.

Dental X-rays emit low-level radiation that is considered to be safe. At Fox Valley Dental, we take all the necessary precaution so that we can limit all the patient’s exposure to radiation when we carry out this practice.

In addition, we use lead apron shields to protect the body and also use fast film that reduces the time taken in each X-ray hence limiting the exposure.

How Often Should I be Taking an X-ray?

Taking an X-ray mainly depends on what the patient needs or prefers. The Aurora Dentist will recommend such a test only after reviewing your medical as well as dental history. In addition, the dentist will consider age, signs and symptoms, the dental exam, and risk of disease.

An elaborate and extensive dental X-ray is preferred for new patients. An entire series is good for 3 to 5 years. The bitewing X-ray, simply described as one on top and bottom teeth biting together, is carried out during visits and is recommended at least once or twice in a year so that new dental problems can be evaluated.
