Providing quality dental care is much easier for San Antonio area dentists when they have extensive, comprehensive information about their patients’ oral health – and pictures are far more accurate than written notes. To go a step further: pictures that show what’s going on below the visible surface of your teeth and gums are worth even more than a thousand words. So, along with a thorough oral exam, most dentists want complete and up-to-date x-rays.
The frequency of x-rays is largely determined by your age and the state of your oral health. Because children are growing and they experience more changes to their teeth, they usually need x-rays more often.
X-rays also help Shavano Park, Leon Springs, and Beorne dentists find cavities, evaluate gum health, and identify any major changes to your teeth and mouth.
Safety is an important issue that all dentists consider when ordering x-rays, because low levels of radiation are used to obtain the images. Many essential precautions are taken to limit exposure, such as putting leaded aprons and collars on the patients.
It is important that women in San Antonio inform their dentist if they are pregnant because special considerations should be taken.
