Dental Health Topics


Radiographs are the X-Ray pictures that are taken of your mouth in the dental office. These pictures allow your dentist to see what is happening beneath the surface of your teeth and gums.
  • A radiograph can help your dentist see:
  • Tumors
  • Small areas of decay between teeth
  • Infections in the bone
  • Gum (periodontal) disease
  • Abcesses
  • Cysts
  • Developmental Abnormalities
The information provided by radiographs will help your dentist evaluate your overall oral health.
