Digital dental x-rays are an essential diagnostic tool used for preventative oral care. Routine x-rays will show things that your dentist won’t find during a regular exam, including:
- Bone loss
- Decay (between the teeth)
- Developmental abnormalities
- Problems inside a tooth, or along the gum line
- Poor tooth or root positions
- Abscess or cysts
Finding these problems before you feel them allows Lucky Dental to provide personalized treatment planning custom designed to maintain lasting oral health. A full mouth series of digital dental x-rays should be taken during your first visit, and may last for 3 to 5 years. However, your dentist may recommend regular bite wing dental x-rays during your routine exams (once or twice a year) to identify potential new problems, because the best dental treatment is proactive.
