Did you know that exposure time for early dental x-rays was as long as 20 minutes for each picture? During that time patients had to be perfectly still!
Intraoral X-rays are the most common type of Dental X-rays. This type of X-ray shows detailed images of the tooth, bone and supporting tissues of the mouth. Amongst other things, these images help Dentists:
• Find cavities
• Examine tooth roots
• Check the health of the bony area around the tooth
• Determine if periodontal disease is an oral care issue
• See the status of developing teeth.
