Dental X-rays Cheltenham
Bringing the insides out!
Dental X-rays can take images of your teeth that your Cheltenham dentist can use to assess your dental and overall oral problem.
This helps your Cheltenham dentist identify and measure tooth decay, bone deformities, root pathologies, periodontal disease, teeth eruption, and many other issues.
They may seem complicated, but they’re a standard treatment that is just as significant as teeth cleaning.
Importance of Dental X-rays
Dental X-rays are usually done yearly.
They may be performed more often if your Cheltenham dentist is keeping track of the development of an existing dental problem or procedure.
- 70% less radiation than conventional film X-rays
- Take less time and easier to take than conventional film X-rays
- Streamlined designs, taking the pain out of taking X-rays
- Better quality viewing
- Immediate result
- Prevent issues from being undetected
- Lessens your time in the chair
- Easily stored on the computer
- More costly and environment-friendly
The circumstances that may affect how often you undergo dental X-rays include:
- Current oral health
- Signs of an oral disease
- History of gum disease or cavities
Children may need dental X-rays more often than adults since their dentists might require keeping track of their permanent teeth.
Preparation for Dental X-rays
Dental X-rays do not require any specific preparations. Just brush your teeth before your X-ray appointment. Doing so creates a cleaner environment.
The X-ray machine is placed beside your head to take and record images of your teeth and the entire mouth.
Our dental team will guide you throughout the procedure.
Stay still while we take and record the images. Spacers will be moved and adjusted in your mouth to capture the proper images.
