Why do I need x-rays?
X-rays provide our professionals the tools they need to gain a better picture of your teeth and how they interact in relation to one another and your gum line. An x-ray can help us determine and target the problem areas of your mouth and provide us with the information necessary to better comprehensive dental care.
What do X-rays see that we can't?
X-rays allow us to see angles and areas of your teeth not readily visible during the course of a normal check-up. They also provide a picture of the parts of your teeth hidden by your gums and the best course of action for treatment for the total span of each individual tooth.
Dr. Annan uses digital x-rays, rather than older film based x-rays. Digital x-rays require less radiation (in fact, minuscule amounts of radiation) and fewer "re-takes".
