When you visit the dentist, you should expect to have a comfortable and pleasant experience. Your mouth will be assessed, and any dental conditions or issues will be identified via dental x-rays. These allow your M2 Dental professional to diagnose and treat any dental issues you may have before they become serious problems.
X-rays can be used to see problems that are not visible to the naked eye. These issues can be between teeth or even inside them, as x-rays let dentists look at the structure of teeth and the gums as well as the jawbone in order to diagnose and prescribe treatment. The images taken by an x-ray allow dentists to find:
First, you will be covered with a lead apron that protects your body from exposure to radiation. Once that is done, a small piece of plastic will be placed in the mouth, and you will bite down. The image will be taken, and once your dentist has all the information they need, the x-ray will be complete.
Depending on your oral health, your Vancouver dentist will perform x-rays as needed to evaluate the mouth. Full x-rays are usually recommended for new patients or if you have not been to the dentist in more than 6 months. As long as you attend regular biannual dental appointments, you will need fewer x-rays as time goes on because your dentist will be more aware of your oral health.
