The Utility Of Dental X-rays

Posted on 12/10/2021 by Dynamic Dental Office
The Utility Of Dental X-raysIf you have wondered why you might need a dental X-ray exam, here we will talk a little more about it. Keep on reading to learn more about its many benefits!

We Can See Deeper With X-rays

X-rays consist of images we get using high-energy electromagnetic radiation. Soft and not very dense tissues such as our skin and organs do not absorb said radiation, so they will not be visible in the image. This is unlike solid and denser materials, such as bones and teeth, which can absorb said radiation and appear white.

That is why it is so useful to our dentists, as they allow us to see beyond the tissue of your oral cavity, and thus we can explore deeper areas of your teeth. With this, we look for apparently invisible alterations and possible pathologies.

What Is The Difference Between Therapeutic And Diagnostic X-rays?

Not all X-ray studies our dentists perform are the same. The type of study we do will depend on the purpose of your visit to our offices. That said, it can be a therapeutic or diagnostic X-ray.

Diagnostic X-rays are the type of study that we will perform during a standard dental visit with cleaning and a general oral exam. The purpose of this is that our dentists have a broad and comprehensive image of your teeth (from the crown to the root and the bone that supports it) and your mouth, with which we will search for any potential signs of pathologies that require extensive investigation.

On the other hand, therapeutic X-rays are those that we carry out with the purpose that the radiation resolves the pathology, as in the cases of oral cancer, which we use both to treat it and to prevent the return of cancer cells. To learn more, please come to our offices to meet our expert radiology dentists and learn more about this excellent procedure today.
