X-rays are an important tool that provides the ability to examine the roots, jaws, and facial bones of the patient. X-rays aid in determining the degree of decay, periodontal disease, abscesses or any pathology, i.e. cysts or tumors, that may not be visible. Most new patients have a full set of x-rays taken while check-up x-rays are taken as needed.
Mishel Dental uses digital x-rays exclusively, reducing radiation by as much as 90% compared to film-based radiography.
